Everyone probably already knows this but once you have a bunch of jpegs the right size you can make a bat file that will rename all the jpegs to a metadata extention. BTW I am running windows 7, not sure if it differs on the older os’s.
Open notepad and type the following
ren *.jpg *.metathumb
save this notepad as metadata.bat
save it to your desktop or working area
put all your jpegs into a folder with that file and run it.
it will change all of the extentions to the metadata format.
I have been doing my cover art by hand for the default view and this has saved me a bunch of time. I have reposted this as i have seen questions pertaining to the conversion. My inital post contained a vital type error and has thus been fixed.
For those of you that are not computer savy and would like to do this I have uploaded the needed file to mediafire for you to use.
Place this file into the folder with your already sized Jpeg files and double click it to convert.
