Best way to find missing Album Art in iTunes?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Missing alot of almbum art and most of the music I have in my library was not purchased through iTunes.

Is there any way to get the art that I am currently missing?

I personally use albumartexchange.com for all my artwork in itunes.  I download a 600x600 file to a desktop folder and then embed it into the actual itunes file.

Possible to do hundreds of albums at one shot? Is it free?

 

It loks like you can only search for one artist at a time. Id like to just send a txt file of all my music and get all the equivalent artwork. Would gladly pay for this.

It's free but you have to search the site album by album for the artwork

That would take me way too long. I need somehting that can do large amounts at one shot.

long story short, i tried lots of programs and services and to put it simply i got annoyed at the tedium and work it took to establish all my album art in itunes and on my ipod.  I finally sprung for "tuneup"  it costs anywhere from 30 to 50 dollars depending on what options you want, but the ease of use and headache it has saved me were worth it.   I still use it on a regular basis.

Best site I know of is freecovers.com but you have to do it manually. Doug's Scripts has a script that will put all the albums without artwork into a playlist. That should help.

Thanks for that info.

Interesting, I was just about to buy "Rinse" from Real Netwroks fro $39 but then hesitated when I saw your response.

Have you tried rinse and if so, is it comparable to Tuneup?

I noticed when I looked on iTunes for a big batch of cover art it would do a quick search and do a poor job. If I sorted by artist then right clicked to search for artwork iTunes would find it. You can work on it over time. I have over 5000 albums now.

What do you mean by "sort by artist"? Do you mean simply clicking artist box in itunes and then right clicking to find album art?

How does that yield better results?

Not sure if you're on a Mac or a PC but if you're on a Mac one of your options is:  Coverscout

 

I've found AlbumCoverFinder on PC - the developers website is down but I found it hosted here

I manually add all my cover art, that way I can check the quality of the image, or if necessary scan my own from my cd leaflet.
