Exports and then re-imports selected tracks' artwork

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This script will export then re-import the artwork data of the selected tracks obliging iTunes to embed the artwork in the track's file's meta-data.

For best results, use with an album's worth of tracks--or so--at a time. iTunes may be obliged to perform a number of background tasks when applying image data and may prevent the script from proceeding if a large amount of data is involved.

Note: this app does not affect how the Finder may or may not display a file's icon image.
