Thank you for this. With all due respect, it seems a solution in search of a problem. If you intend to incorporate this test, I suggest you add something like "Needs an Artist", instead of just a single space.

It does not seem likely that a user would want a file to only contain artwork and if it is seen that no other tags exist, then at least one would be added. I made the mistake by choosing a test file that I had not tagged and opened the editor which was already on the artwork tab from previous use (thus not noticing the file had no tags). On the other hand, I guess it was good that I did this, or this issue may have gone unnoticed for awhile longer.

ChiggyChiggy's original question was why the embedding sometimes didn't work on his first try. I speculated that this happened when his file only had ID3v2.4 tags originally. Do you have a way of testing this?
