Artwork Not Showing in Your Music Library? Problem Solved

It is quite common for people to transfer their music library from system to system or device to device. But somehow, during the transferring process, music artwork may be missing and will not show up in certain devices or players. Under such circumstances, most of you may miss the enjoyment with album art showing, not the generic grey icon. The fundamental thing to have artwork always showing is to embed the artwork to the music file so that the artwork can be transferred along with the music files. But how can we do that easily? Don’t worry. This is where the Wondershare TidyMyMusic for Mac (Wondershare TidyMyMusic) comes in for help. This program automatically finds artwork for all the songs in your music collection and then you can embed the artwork in just a click. Can’t wait to have a try? Let’s see a step-by-step guide below.

2 Find artworks for all the songs

Go to the header of the program to find a Scan button. Then check the box marked Search for Unidentified Songs and click the Scan button to start finding artworks for all the songs.

3 Embed artworks in the songs

Select one song and check its artwork in the right column. Then click the Apply button on the bottom to embed the artwork to the music file so that the artwork can show everywhere such as your iPhone. You are suggested to select several songs in a row and apply at the same time, which saves much time and energy.
