Hello again,

How do I delete embedded album art pictures from all mp3 files in a given folder and its subfolders??
I tried the following line with no luck.
Code: [Select]
exiftool -picture= "F:\Music\*.mp3"
Quote
Warning: Sorry, picture is not writable
Nothing to do.

Since this line to extract embedded covers is working, I assume "-picture" is the correct tag name?
Code: [Select]
exiftool -picture -b %1 > cover.jpg

Sorry, but ExifTool doesn't yet have the ability to write MP3 files.

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).

Apparently you can do this with a program like Mp3tag:

(Disclaimer: I haven't tried this.)
