mp3's get bigger becoz of album art! - each song?
Authored by: Anonymous on May 27, '03 01:06:10PM

From an earlier post, it looks like the album art os stored in an ID3 tag in the MP3 file directly. But does this mean that a new copy of the album art is stored in EACH MP3 from a single album, or is there just one copy for each album? (That would sure be a redundnet waste of space)

Ideally, I'd either put the album pictures in the album folder in the iTunes Music folder, or put them all in a seperate "Album Covers" folder, and then use an XML file to link everything up. Of course, we know how Apple is of two minds when it comes to thoughly supporting XML-based preferences in the iApps (see recent opinion column in MacWorld about how iTunes is becomeing closed in that respect, and fearing the same for Keynote..)
