Gather audio tracks whose files contain no artwork metadata

For macOS 10.10 and later only. MP3, AAC and ALAC audio files have the capability to store artwork image data internally as metadata, thus allowing artwork to "travel" with a file. This applet will examine the files of the selected tracks (or tracks in the selected playlist) for artwork metadata. Eligible audio tracks whose files are capable of embedding image data but do not contain artwork metadata will be copied to a new discrete playlist.

iTunes-assigned artwork may not necessarily be embedded as metadata. Pre-ID3v2 MP3s do not store image data. This applet does not affect how the Finder may or may not display a file's icon image.

Also see Is Artwork Embedded.

To embed artwork to tracks' files try Re-Embed Artwork or Re-Apply Downsized Artwork.
