Re: Album Artwork on Audacity
The above is spot on. MP3 is a sound format - it can't store images or any other stuff in it, audacity is merely saving the sound. However, what MP3 does have is ID3 tags (the things audacity prompts you to enter about the name, composer, year etc. when you save as an MP3.)
It's these tags pieces of software use to query an online database containing the album artwork.
