Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

iTunNORM should work just make sure there's no spaces before or after the apostrophe.

Regarding the 'retro' appearance,
I've given it some thought, but I don't want to drastically alter it from where it is.
The general idea of this component is to clean up newly downloaded files, retaining only tags that you keep in your library, remembering the last used config to apply again next time you download some album.

If the component imports a list of known tags from the library, it will seem as if it lists tags present in the selected files. Wrong!
If the component imports a list of known tags from the selected files... then it just clones the functionality of the Properties dialog, so what's the point?

Re embedded images-
Everything not specifically checked as preserved is discarded - including stuff that foobar2000 doesn't even show (and that's the point of this component), basically tags are discarded and then selected data is written back to fresh tags.
All embedded images are removed, and if "preserve front cover" is checked, just front cover is written to the fresh tags.

Re iTunNORM-
It seems there's currently no way to retain it, I'm looking into it.

What is the difference between this component and the Masstagger "Remove all except for ..." function?

No one??…

Well... After all this time doing tests, I came to the conclusion that the function integrated in Masstagger is reasonably better than Tag Sanitizer.

The Tag Sanitizer appears to be a more specific component with a few functions dedicated to the label it proposes, but in several directories containing entire discographies, it ended up removing more tags than I had stipulated, which caused me considerable headache to re-tag the affected files. Situation that I did not see happen with the function integrated to Masstagger.

Hi,
thanks for the new foo_sanitizer 1.3 component.

When trying to extract the embedded front album art from audio files (AAC or FLAC), what kind of format is expected in the "Move front cover to external file" input box?
Whatever I try (e.g. %filename%.jpg, or folder.jpg, or full path to a filename) the operation fails with the message "Please specify a JPEG file name to save to". See screenshot here: https://ibb.co/fxyYfGV

Foobar2000 v1.6.4 (portable install), foo_sanitizer v1.3, Win10 x64.
