Thanks for that! It worked very well. 👍👍👍
Off topic, could "the convert the front cover to JPG without resizing" feature be enhanced a bit more? For example: (1)cover.png, 5.5MB, 2000×2000px→cover.jpg, 550kb, 2000×2000px;(2)cover.jpg, 5.5MB, 2000×2000px→cover.jpg, 550kb, 2000×2000px.

Hi there.

Would it be possible to condense "Attach Front Cover" and "Cover Resizer" into a single component?

I would like a component that attaches front album cover to audio files, so that in the act of attaching it would already be possible to decide the size of the cover.

Thanks for the attention.

I can probably do that. It would be browsing for a single file and resizing/attaching it to a selection. I'm not doing anything like the existing "batch attach" option.

Thanks for reading my request.

I thought it would easy to integrate but my original code was such a mess it's turning out to be more effort than I thought. I'm working on it!

What's the name of the component?

EDIT: foo cover resizer

I'm going to do a lot of tests, thanks!

Make sure you have the beta version uploaded today. By default GitHub hides "pre-release" files and you need to click on "Assets" link to reveal it. You don't want the old version from last month.

I've tested it on virtually all audio formats using various picture formats, the component is fast and obedient. It is becoming one of the most useful components for foobar2000! I made single and batch attachments, no failures detected.

I still wondered if it would be convenient to suggest to this component a checkbox with the option "Remove all except front", but looking closely at its proposal, I believe that would go beyond its nature.

In summary, this component was very good and is now excellent. My most sincere thanks for having answered one more request on my part.

Remove all except front already exists since the previous version. It's found under the Cover Utils submenu.

It just goes to show no one likes readme files.   :))

Well... I have nothing to add then... I use this feature, I just thought it was contained in another component of yours, I forgot it was the same...  :-[

This component deserved to be listed in the official list of components of foobar2000. It is one of the most useful ones available right now. The same goes for foo_cover_info.

@snotlicker
You have made excellent contributions to the foobar2000 user community, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Thanks for the nice words but all the hard work is done by Peter, the developer of foobar2000. The foobar2000 SDK (software development kit) makes these things far simpler than they should be. There is no way I could add this functionality without the easy to use methods he provides.

I don't have to know or care about the target files if they're mp3/flac/m4a/whatever. I can't even begin to imagine how much code there is behind the scenes doing the actual work. We don't get to see that part due to closed source nature of foobar2000 itself but I'm sure it was a tremendous amount of effort to write!

Which software is necessary to write components? Microsoft Visual Studio?

Removed the beta label.

https://github.com/marc2k3/fb2k-component/releases

Since it shares a page with other components, versions/dates are now shown for all.
