Thanks Lowlander, but how can Album Art Tagger do this? A script that can fix all of the tracks in a collection that have bad link\pointers to non-existing images must first find\identify all the tracks that have bad link\pointers to non-existing images before it can remove the bad links. That's the tricky bit - actually creating a list of tracks that have bad link\pointers to non-existing images. As far as I can tell, you have to manually find them one album at a time and then either manually remove the bad links. At that point, you could use Album Art Tagger to remove the links, but that doesn't actually save any time. Either way, the time consuming aspect is finding\listing the tracks with bad links. If there was a way to list all the tracks in one go, then you could clean them in one go (manually or with Album Art Tagger), and then let the automatic tagger update the art as it plays them. Can Album Art Tagger find\identify all the tracks that have bad link\pointers to non-existing images?

Ask questions about the operation of an Addon in the Addons own thread. It's my understanding you just use it on all files and use the preset to remove the non-existent Artwork.

Why do you have to identify them? Just run the script on all your files. If there is some tracks without bad links, there will be nothing to remove.

That being said, the "Tagging inconsistencies" addon can easily identify all tracks with bad album art links.
