Multiple pictures in tags

After tagging the front cover in advanced tag editior it seems that the pictures are doubled.

old file


newer tag



I tried to reproduce this the following way with build 14315:

1) Created a new database

2) Added the "old file" to it

3) Opened the file with the Advanced Tag Editor with Helium 12, it contains 4 attached pictures. Helium 11 has some bug, since it only shows one picture in Properties and the Advanced Tag Editor, 4 pictures can be verified via a hex-editor.

4) Removed all but the first pictures and saved the changes

5) Verified with Properties in Helium 12 and a hex-editor that only one picture exists

6) Re-opened the file with the Advanced Tag Editor, one picture shown

7) Changed Label and saved

I now verified via Properties and a hex-editor that only one pic exists, so it is not doubled.

Did you made any steps different to me when you tested (external tagging etc)?

Thanks, please let me know if I missed some step or such.

Sorry somehow it's doubled.

Added a new album Watch about album artist Seeed Seeed

That's why there were as many various artists for unknown reason!

 I found in tags were front back artist front back artist = 6 covers! Al 2 times. It's not goog to see as we need to scroll 3 pictures down.

deleted all pictures!

After tagging the result are 2 entries!

Good thing is various artist is gone!!!

I still found 2 entries of the same picture.
Hm, some is still wrong.

Oops. Now my post is doubled. Sorry.


Quick q: Since this seems to give other behaviour than the file you shared with Me first, can you then share one or all of these files so that I can test this exact case tomorrow? Also, please let me know if you could reproduce it with the file you send to Me. Thanks
Sorry. Picture 137 was another album (but same problem).

that's the correct album:
138: album artist is correct shown and ONE picture only.
139: second track. Two pictures.
140: this track has only one picture too like first track. 10 others have 2 pictures. Very strange. I tagged it all at once with one picture (133).


Note: pictures 138-140: same pictures shown under Helium as under MP3tag.


I did several more tagging. Even one albums not tagged in MP3tag or Hellium before.
It's strange. some files have one, some two and rarely some four of the same cover. I am talking about tagging one full album at once and it is a mixture!
