Save Album Art to Album Folder v6.10

For macOS 11 and later only. This script will export the artwork of the selected tracks (or the tracks in a selected playlist) as an image file to the folder which contains each selected track's file--presumably each track's Album folder--or a single user-selected folder. If multiple album tracks are selected, the script will make sure only one artwork file per Album is exported.

Also see Save Album Art as folder.jpg.

This app is free to try full-featured in Demo Mode. In Demo Mode it will only process 5 image files per launch. If you like it you can purchase a code for $1.99 which will unlock the 5-image restriction. Launch the app and click "Register..." in its File menu to make an in-app purchase.

Action shot:

Save Album Art to Album Folder in action

The image output settings will be saved between uses.

Save Album Art as folder.jpg v4.6

For macOS 11 and later only. This script will export the artwork of the selected tracks or tracks in the selected playlist as a JPEG image file named folder.jpg to the folder which contains each selected track's file--presumably the track's Album folder. Many third-party music players and systems (Sonos, for example) may look for a "folder.jpg" here to use as display artwork. If multiple album tracks are selected, the script will make sure only one image file per Album is exported.

Restore Artwork from Album Folder v4.4

Copy Tag Info Tracks to Tracks v6.5

For macOS 11 and later only. This applet will copy specific tag data from one set of selected tracks to a second set of selected tracks. You can copy any combination of Checkmark, Song Title, Artist, Album Artist, Album, Genre, Year, Disc and Track, Composer, Grouping, Work, Movement, BPM, Comments, Lyrics, Rating, Loved/Disliked, Plays/Skips, Artwork and Compilation.

Use with thoughtfulness. Both sets of selected tracks should be sorted by Play Order/Playlist Order (or at the very least using the same sorting) so the tag info is copied in the correct order from and to the intended tracks.

Only tracks in the local Media library are accessible. Tracks in the Apple Music interface are inaccessible.

Action shot:

Copy Tag Info Tracks to Tracks in action

Copy the chosen tags from a set of Source tracks to a second set of Target tracks.

  • Embed Track Artwork (to the file)
  • Apply Metadata Artwork (to the track entry)

  • Copy Track Artwork to Clipboard
  • Save Track Artwork to File

Track CPR v3.3

For macOS 11 and later only. This script will assist with re-associating replacement files with dead tracks. The Music app can perform this task, too, but only one track at a time.

The process takes 3 steps:

  • The script finds and lists the "dead" tracks in the Music library
  • User drag-and-drops potential replacement files to the window; a viable replacement file is one whose name, album and artist metadata matches a dead track's
  • Re-associate viable replacement files with their matched track entries

The Read Me contains additional important details and cautions.

Action shot:

The dead tracks with "New File Location" entries will be revived after the new file is applied
