Use AmazonMP3 to find iTunes album art Apps
I just checked out the new AmazonMP3 site to see what all the hype is about. Since I already have an existing Amazon account, it started to recommend music to me. Turns out that most of the recommendations were albums that I already have, ripped long before the days of including album art.

Since iTunes' "Download album art" feature is terribly hit or miss, I've tried to complete my library manually. I was delighted to discover that AmazonMP3 is easier to search than the corresponding Amazon CD stores, and the artwork on the site is higher quality than the CD store! Combined with the recommendation aspect, I'm able to quickly retrieve and add art for lots of artists in my Library. Thanks Amazon!

Yes, but then when you're adding album art, this larger, higher-quality art gets duplicated and embedded in each and every track on the album.

While I don't like not being able to use my own artwork for it, I far prefer the iTunes Store's method of a single image file per album stored separately.

It can be a bit of work but I often get album art from Wikipedia.

iTunes users (on Macs) should also try MPFreaker:
http://www.lairware.com/mpfreaker

I have been using it for years, it keeps getting better (regular updates) and has helped fill in many gaps in all sorts of categories in my iTunes library. I have no connection with them except as a paid user. Highly recommended.

When you couple MPFreaker with beaTunes:
http://www.beatunes.com
you end up with very few gaps in your library info.

Does anyone know how to add album art to iTunes and have it used in that iTunes method of 1 pic per album, instead of embedding it in each file?

Another place to find album art is this website that searches over 6,000,000 Non-DRM tracks (not including AmazonMP3, which it says its adding soon) all at once - www.songboxx.com. With the addition of AmazonMP3, it'll be a pretty incredible search engine, and THE place to figure out where to purchase non-DRM music on the internet.

if u add the album art manually then itunes will embed the art to each song on the album?

but if u tell it to get album art then it just goes to itunes store when u open it and doesnt actually embed it?

i read somewhere, just adding the art to the first song of the album will default all the songs to that art, true?

im trying to get it to show the same on both my macbook and ipod.
and i have ocd tendencies.
