EasyTAG is a utility for viewing, editing and writing the ID3 tags of different audio files, using an intuitive graphical interface.

The interface displays basic file informations taken from the file header, such as bitrate or duration. With the interface, you can edit common tag fields including: title, artist, album, year, track number, genre and comment which were available into ID3v1.1 and ID3v2.3 tag. Users can also edit special ID3v2.3 fields like: disc album, composer, original artist/performer, copyright, URL, encoder name and attached pictures.

With the tree browser, users can select the directory to search for supported files (with or without including sub-directories). All files found are displayed in a main with a variable background colour to show, in one glance, the files in the same directory.

A second useful view mode, organizes the files by artist and by album to have a quick look to all the artists of your collection, and all albums for each artist.
