Ok, I deleted all the artwork in Jaikoz, the delete job worked fine, the result however is worse than my starting position.

After the deletion iTunes does NOT recognize the previous artwork on all of the tracks involved. So deleting the embedded artwork resulted in NO artwork in iTunes at all. I had to instruct iTunes to gather all the album artwork again (which is not perfect, ofcourse).

The artwork that I collected throughout the years (googling etc) has been lost too.

My lessons:
- make a sound judgement whether artwork repair is necessary;
- make (double) sure the default Jaikoz setting to find album art is correct (only repair when no artwork is available);

Thanks for the reply. If the artwork is embedded by Jaikoz, how can I delete it to return to its artwork in iTunes, then?
Hi Paul,

First a big thank you for this great tool. I am not so technical, but just a big music lover. My precious collection in iTunes was quite up-to-date but still could use some enhancements - that's why I immediatly purchased Jaykoz because of its good recommendations. This weekend I spent a lot of time on running Jaikoz to analyze a bit more than 11.000 items.

A lot of metadata has been corrected but I am a bit shocked that most of my artwork seems to be changed to a much lower resolution. Where I had 600x600 or even more, now its often not more than 90x90. This is easy to notice for me because in iTunes I use the coverflow view a lot on my 21' screen ;-) In my enthousiasm I propably forgot to change the default setting for album art to "only when field is empty". Maybe its a good advice to set this a default, so amateurs like myself can't do anything wrong.

Can you help me out? Is MusicBrainz artwork always of this low resolution? Can it be corrected in some way without going to my backup state? (I backup up the itunes xml first but I do not want to spend another weekend running Jaikoz...).

Last: Is a processing & analyzing time of > 24 hours normal for appr. 11.000 files? I think so, but just to be sure...
