Remove cover art from iTunes4 to save disk space

Yes, Synergy does store the cover art in its own folder, leaving the iTunes files alone. It even does a great job with storing one cover art for an entire album and not on a per-song basis, if the album art is available. I'm not affiliated, usual disclaimer, with Synergy.

The problem is Synergy is still converting and storing files as 100-500k TIFFs instead of JPGs. I have put artwork in all my music files - I edited every image to have a file size of 8-14k, a negligible file-size increase. Hard drive space is reasonably priced that it wouldn't honestly matter, and what, I'll get one less song on my iPod? The savings in converting my MP3 to AAC has recovered so much space that worrying about adding 10-20k on songs that shed a meg or more each is not worth it. Synergy dupes the art embedded in my AACs, bloats them to TIFFs. Hope that's fixed soon.
