MP3 Cover Art Embedder and Resizer

I updated my Cover Art Resizer program.

New features:

  • configurable output verbosity
  • allows wildcards in directory names
  • “force” switch for thumb.jpg re-creation

The program takes one or more paths as an argument, searches the entire directory tree for “cover.jpg” files and creates “thumb.jpg” files in 100×100 pixels size. It also embeds the thumb.jpg into the mp3s found in the directory.

It requires the Python Image Library and Mutagen. (If you have setuptools installed, the dependencies will be installed automatically)

You can install by running python setup.py install from the source code distribution or installing the supplied EGG or using the EXE.

Run coverresizer -h for help. (Your Python Scripts directory must be in the PATH)

Files:
Coverresizer 0.3 Source Distribution
Coverresizer 0.3 Windows Installer EXE
Coverresizer 0.3 EGG for Python 2.4

  • Hi Hanno

    Absolutely cool script! Thanks a lot for sharing it. I did not have the cover images included in my mp3 files (and I still don’t want them to be included). With your script I can build a version of my music for importing into an IPOD.

  • Thanks for that! Just pointed it at my Android phone and have embedded 200×200 pixel cover art! A few tweaks and it run fine on linux and python 2.6.
