Am looking for a program in Ubuntu that can remove the logo/image of an mp3 file. For example when i open Banshee (Or any other player that can show the image of a mp3 file) it shows this guy from Ecuador, Peru or some country that freaks people out. I want to remove his image from all mp3 files i have.

Just to add, this is not one of those hidden files that comes with the mp3 files folder. This is an embedded image INSIDE the mp3. Just to clarify that part and i want to strip clean the image.

Would be great a terminal command (Since for me is better) but a gui one will work as well.

Command line: Eyed3 (Install eyed3)

EyeD3 is a Python program and module that provides the ability to read and write ID3 tags (v1.x and v2.3/v2.4). It also decodes MP3 headers (bit rate, sample frequency, play time, etc.).

It has a command line option --remove-images or you can use --add image="".

And it is inside USC.

If you want a GUI option: Easytag (Install easytagaac)
