I am using media monkey to organize my music. This seems like a pretty straightforward process, but I have a dilemma. I don't know if I should embed the album art, save it as folder.jpg for each album, or if I should do both.

Some software and devices are picky about this, and embedded works on almost everything. But, it seems a bit redundant to have an album art for each song instead of one per album. It doesn't add very much space though because each album art is about 20kb.

I need to decide what to do before I do this. Are there more pros or cons to either method that I'm not seeing?

The album art on all of your mp3's is either embedded inside of the MP3, or it's a separate file. I am organizing my music and I want to know which way is better so everything can be organized the same way, which is the entire point of organizing.

As I explained some software and devices can be picky about it. Luckily, foobar2000 works either way but my phone and Zune are picky.

Embedding it is more secure and can be accessed whenever the song properties are accessed. Having a separate folder is only good if you plan on modifying the pictures often.

In short, embedding is more aesthetically pleasing and hassle-free.

Embed it like I embedded my face in the sweet valley between the generous globes of your mother's breasts.
