I think it'd be pretty cool if SK was smart enough to compare the cover art it downloads with images already in the album folder, and if it's not as good as what already exists, don't use it. At the same time, I think it should look at all the art work in the album folder and delete any duplicate artwork, rename the best one to the specified name (cover.jpg)

I only ask because after years of using different tagging applications, I have albums with several copies of the same artwork in different sizes, file names snd even formats (jpg, gif,png), it would be cool if SK could clean these up as well, leaving only the best one.

Currently I use an application that can find and detect duplicate images of different sizes, resolutions, format etc. but this is very tedious work..

Thanks!

SongKong does check downloaded artwork against artwork already embedded in the file as you suggest, but its much more difficult to align files in a folder to songs in that folder. For starters that would make the assumption that songs are already organized one folder per album and to the correct album so what do you do if the existing artwork is incorrect, also if you have multiple artwork how do decide whats what.

So I do not think the first idea is a goer, but we could do something about deleting images, in fact since we already have the Atwork:Save Artwork to Filesystem option so we could add another option that if we had artwork we deleted all existing artwork in the folder before we save the artwork to the filesystem, how about that ?

I think this would work well, can you have it include jpg, gif, png and bmp file types? Thanks!
