    In General Preference there are two options (checkbox):

    1. Save Cover for iPod
    2. Save Cover for Mp3 Player

    So you need to uncheck options Save Cover for Mp3 Player if you use Covers for
    iPod.

    See discussion about this issue at.

    This way you will not see 2 images from iTunes.

    Using Zortam you can always delete picture in batch using menu option Delete Pictures from ID3 tags.

    We have tested all combination with lyrics and cover arts and there is no way to loose lyrics or cover arts on iTunes or Media Player using Zortam.

    It might be that other lyrics programs don’t save lyrics proprely into tags and that’s the main reason why you loose arts.

    To do test:

    1. Uncheck in general options Save Cover for Mp3 Player
    2. Use from Menu option Delete Pictures from ID3 tags
    3. Use from Menu option Delete Lyrics from ID3 tags
    4. Do batch cover art and lyric finder

    Go to iTunes and everything will be there.

    If you use some other lyrics program that updates lyrics in tag, that might be the reason why you loosing arts, so we suggest you to enter lyrics manualy even through Zortam or iTunes.

    EvilLyrics doesn’t write the lyrics to the file. It just sees what your playing and pulls the lyrics in it’s own window. You have to then copy them and paste them.

    I’m checking your suggestoins now.

    Using 6.35 Pro on a library of about 6500 songs.

    Issue is if I do a batch cover art and lyric finder on a a couple songs and it can’t find lyrics but CAN find art, it will attach the art to the file.
    Now if I play the file in ituens the art shows, but the file has 2 image files attached to it.

    Now I use another program to find the lyrics that your program can’t.

    I have already found that if the song is loaded in itunes playing I have to remove it from there for the lyrics to save correctly. But when I add lyrics to any of these songs it removes the image.
