Loading tags from paths is the fastest way to fill missing audio metadata. Use it when folder and file names include an Artist, Album, Artist Album, Title, Track # or Year info, and folders contain album covers.
Tag Editor can parse filenames and folder names to convert them into corresponding Artist, Album, Artist Album, Title, Track # and Year tags. Images from album folders can be converted into artworks automatically as well.
Or you can manually select path components to quickly turn them into ID3 tags, including Genre and Key, with Tag Editor.
- Load tags from paths automatically
- Select and convert path components into music tags
- Convert local images into album artworks automatically
When the information contained within file and folder names follows the pattern 'Artist - Album - Title', setup selection within columns, and invoke the menu 'Edit / Load Tags / From Paths'.
When the information contained within file and folder names does not fit the pattern 'Artist - Album - Title', you can select path components manually. For example, select one or more Artist cells of files having the same pattern, select the desired component of the path from the context menu 'Load Artist from Path'. It is possible to convert selected path components to the Title, Artist, Album, Genre, Album Artist, Grouping, Comment, Initial Key and Genre. This action can be applied to several cells at the same time. Please note that paths in such cases should have the same format.
There is a possibility to automatically load artworks from the same location where audio files reside. Select one or more Artwork cells and invoke the menu 'Edit / Load Tags / From Paths'
