How do you embed album art into a FLAC file?

Seeing great visuals about the artist and album while listening to music is what elevates our musical experience to the next level. In this tutorial, you will learn how to convert your favorite albums to lossless FLAC format, create metadata such as album, artist, title, and add album artwork to your FLAC file.

What is a FLAC file?

FLAC, short for Free Lossless Audio Codec, is a compressed digital audio file format. As the name suggests, audio files compressed in the FLAC format are lossless, unlike formats such as Mp3 and Wma, and they take up much less disk space than raw audio files.

Therefore, it can be said that the FLAC format is the best of both worlds in terms of sound quality and file size.

Do FLAC files support embedding metadata and album artwork?

Definitely! You can embed cover arts and metadata such as song title, album, artist, genre, etc, into a FLAC file so that you can see this data on your music player when you are listening to music in FLAC format.
