How to Create or Edit ID3 Tags

Ideally, an ID3 tag would include information about the song, artist, album, year, and genre. Some of your tracks may have just the artist labeled, others only the song title, while still others may have all of the information you need. If you want to keep your music collection organised, editing the ID3 tags is essential. The instructions below will get you started editing those tags.  There are other ways and programs you can use, just ask Google if you want more info!

Musicmatch

  1. Open Musicmatch Jukebox. If the Music Library window isn't open, click View and select My Library to open it.
     
    Musicmatch also has a Super Tagging feature that can look up tag info and fill in the data,
    though it doesn't work for all tracks.
  2. Find the song you want to edit in the Music Library, and right-click it. If it's not there, drag the MP3 file into the Music Library. Then select Edit > Edit Track Info.
     
    A tabbed window will let you fill in a plethora of information, even lyrics.
  3. Add, remove, or edit any information in the ID3 tags. Click OK when you're finished.

Itunes

  1. Launch iTunes.

  2. Select a song or group of songs you want to edit. Then go the File menu and select Get Info. PC users can right-click the selected song to select Get Info.
     
    You can even add artwork if you have the image file.
  3. Add, remove, or edit any information in the ID3 tags. Click OK when you're finished.
