If you have an album in Windows Media Player 11 that seems to have a hard time finding its own artwork/tags, there are other ways to find album art for these songs and add it to Windows Media Player. We’ll walk you through it.
*NEW* – If you’re using Windows 7’s crappy Windows Media Player 12, check out my tutorial on how to downgrade to version 11 before doing this tutorial as the Advanced Tag Editor in version 12 has been removed!
So here’s our album with no artwork:
Now we can search on Google Images for an Album Art image file for this album.
Now download that image for the album you’re trying to find album art for and save it into a folder you can remember it’s in.
Bring Windows Media Player open again and right-click one of the tracks in your album.
Click Advanced Tag Editor.
Now, go to the Images tab, and click Add. Find the album art image file you just downloaded and then click Open.
Select the image to be the Front Cover art, then apply/close the dialog box. Your album art should now be on your album!! Presto!
If your album art still does not show, then try right clicking the album in Windows Media Player and clicking Update Album Info.
Enjoy the Album Art!!!
