Add Files and Folder Art 0.8

The Add Files and Folder Art script is a droplet the adds files to iTunes when you drop files and/or folders onto its icon. If there is a .jpg file in a folder, that file's image will be added to any tracks in the folder that currently don't have album art. Should be a handy tool for PC-to-Mac migrators whose music files have been living in the WMP world.

Launching the droplet by double-clicking will prompt you to select one or more folders of files to add to iTunes.

Image files named "folder.jpg" are given precedence over other jpg image files in a folder.

When the iTunes "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when addding to library" preference is set, art is added to the copied tracks; the original files are left alone. (Unless, of course, the dropped files/folders are located inside the designated iTunes Music folder ;-)


Configuring & Installing

No configuration is available for Add Files and Folder Art.

To install, drag the Add Files and Folder Art icon onto your desktop or into the Dock; then just drop files and/or folders onto the icon.


More Info

The script identifies music files solely by file extension -- currently recognized extensions are: mp3, aif, aiff, aac, m4p, m4a, and wav.

Since WAV files don't support tagging, such files will be added to iTunes, but will be skipped when the script attempts to add album art.

Only files with extensions jpg and jpeg will be treated as album art.

If the iTunes preference for Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library is unchecked, art will be added to the original (dropped) files. (Originals will also be modified if the pref is checked and the dropped files/folders are located inside the designated iTunes Music folder.)

It's not necessary to drop a folder; any number of loose files can be dropped onto the droplet. And if one of those files is a jpg, its image will be added to the iTunes tracks. However, if the droplet is activated by double-clicking, only folders can be added.

Bugs and suggestions should be posted at the iLounge AppleScript for iTunes board at ilounge.com.
