Album Art Embedded - not stored in folder

It`s a fail. Album Art (picture) should be only embedded in mp3, not stored in folder as .jpg
Check how it perfectly works in competitors AIMP (photo).

Maybe there is a solution, but i havent found it. Picture i loaded into mp3 is saved as a jpg in folder, and after deletion it also disappears from mp3.

What for is ID3 designed?! to embed pic and info not to be only associated with jpg file in folder.

countless other people would disagree with you on embedding album art into the files.

the only 'issue' is that Winamp doesn't have the means currently to do the embedding itself (since it will use the album art if found in the file over external files), but mp3tag or any other competent tag editor is recommended for embedding if that is wanted.

countless other people has switched to AIMP.

I`ll not accept the answer like "mp3tag or any other competent tag editor is recommended for embedding if that is wanted"... so why there is an option? Design something good or dont design- resign.

Whats very funny- aimp doesnt even show album art, and have excellent AA embed! ;]
Winamp (which im testing now) has an Album Art in main window and dosnt support it correctly).

If i`m wrong, aimp is poor and no one uses it.
I write from Poland, here is fifty fifty (win-aimp) usage.

all i was trying to do was explain what Winamp can currently do as it has been currently coded and the best way to get around that limitation as things are.

i was not saying that it was a good situation and probably should be fixed but that requires developer resources which are otherwise on other things (like the Winamp for Android App).

there was no need to have a go at me so i'll leave you too it as clearly you know more than me about Winamp.

and as a final comment, you should use the correct tool that fits your needs rather than trying to use something which doesn't and makes you unhappy.
