    That's a great question. I just noticed that this is possible because one of the .mp3s that I was playin on my Pearl had the picture of the CD cover. I don't know how this happened. All I did was drag and drop the .mp3 into my music folder. If you figure it out, please tell us.

    I've noticed it happen a couple of times. I am currently messing around to see if I can figure it out.

    Re: Picture in mp3's

    answer found: it's part of the ID3v2 tag. part of the encoding can be an image for front cover, back cover, artist picture and more. the more pictures though, the larger the file size.

    you can edit the ID3 tags using an ID3 editor program like Zortam. It has a 15 day trial, but I'm sure there is a freeware version out there... in a torrent.. on a site.. that is full of "freeware".

    You can even use MusicMatch Jukebox to edit the tag, even sometimes called "supertagging".

    Someone mentioned you could use i-tunes to do this as well. I did a similar thread about this a few months ago

    Oopse, I forgot, I changed it back to the original because I accidently erased the animated version.

    Back to the subject though... I just checked windows media player and you may be able to do it there as well.

    seems Winamp Pro has the feature built in as well. (I wouldn't go through the work just to see the lil picture in the bbplayer)

    perhaps if they upgrade it to a deluxe music/video player then I would go through the work of adding pictures to my mp3s.

    Re: Picture in mp3's

    One way to do it is place a JPG in the music folder and rename the JPG to: Folder.jpg

    This applies to all the mp3s in the folder. So if you had folders for each album you should be able to display a picture for each folder of music.

    Nice find bill!

    much easier than editing all the id3v2 tags.

    I think you need a picture in each song's tag, not just the folder of the album. I think all the players (itunes, MM, WMP, Winamp,ets) allow album art (iTunes is automatic), but some may charge for it (MM used to).
