Has anyone found a way to pull artwork from the iTunes movies? We used to be able to get this hi-res artwork to tag our personal collections. But they have since fixed this. Now with all studios on board, there is artwork for just about any movie. It would be really nice to find a workaround this one.

Google images is also a good shot.

I know hot to get amazon and good images one. I'm talking about the hi-res best quality poster within itunes. They used to be so easy to get now it's blocked. They are very hi-res, with not tagging or anything. If we could figure out where they are stored again that would be sweet.

Not the answer you want, but I download the original movie posters from www.impawards.com.

Google image search. I always try search term "allposters MOIVE TITLE HERE" for decent images first. Then if they don't have it I just search by movie title.

Yeah I get them from impa too... They have some great quality posters. But it really would be nice to get the hi-res art from iTunes... Someone must have some skills at figuring this out.

I love this site. Have an entire folder of artwork for movies I own (or want to own), and someday when funding permits a TB drive, I'll be ripping all my movies to my hard drive and metax tagging them. *dreamy sigh* That'll be the day.

I have the "Simpsons Movie" poster which i took when i rented the movie from iTunes Store, anyone who want it can mail me at patrik.danielsson@gmail.com

We should start a thread where we share artwork from movies we have rented. Seeing as it's blocked, and until someone figures out how to access the art like we used to be able to. We should just all share. Anyone rented Pirates 3? I'm looking for hi-res art for that.

...Pirates 3? I'm looking for hi-res art for that.

You can go here (http://www.impawards.com/2007/pirates_of_the_caribbean_at_worlds_end.html) to find all the available artwork. It gives you a regular size view, and if hi-res is available it'll show a green plus sign on the right. Enjoy!

Thanks, I've used that site many times before...

I'm talking about the artwork from iTunes, the posters on there are extremely HQ about 3mb each. I'm just picky...

Here is an example between a hi-res movie poster from impa and hi-res artwork from iTunes... As you can see the itunes copy is much cleaner, they don't put credits on them or review quotes.

I don't know which I prefer. The itunes one is obviously of a higher quality, but I like having the actual "poster" that was displayed for the movie. If I could get the iTunes ones I'd probably use those, and then just save the posters in a separate folder like I do now.

I'm really interested in doing this for seasons of TV shows. Now that iTunes breaks shows up by season, I hate seeing the same artwork over and over for shows I have multiple seasons of.

quick question regarding 'front row',

when scrolling through movies i know the artwork is displayed on the left but is it possible to have some details underneath it (cast, year, plot review)? also are movies displayed alphabetically?

Yes, you can add cast, credit, review, etc type information to an mp4 file using programs such as MetaX (for Mac) or one of the AtomicParsley implementations for Windows. Do a little search on MP4 tagging and you'll find plenty of solutions.

If you go to my thread for iTunes official artwork
found here: iTunes Official Artwork - Movies, TV Shows and Short Films (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=435176)

there's a big list of shortfilm artwork at the bottom.

I had no idea the green plus sign meant it was high rez. Thanks!

There is a way to share our information, goto www.esnips.com, it gives you 5Gb of espace. That way we can share all sorts, I will soon be creating a website (I know theres others) which will have all my scanned CD's/ Vinyl & DVD artwork on. Not sure on the legalities on this but as the art work downloaded is not very good & hard to find I thought this would be a good start to help out the community who rip there owned versions of the digital media?

until this site is done, we could all use www.esnips.com

Hope this helps?

Thank you. I am new to managing movies in ITunes

I see the discussion going on about where to get high quality movie poster artwork.

My question is:

Once you get the artwork, how do you get it attached to your movie (.mp4 file) in the Itunes database. I'm looking everywhere and can't see how to do it. There are settings for music album artwork but I can't find the same for the movies.

Any help would be appreciated

if you're just adding the artwork, just select the movie, get info and then paste the artwork into the artwork tab. if you want to tag other fields, i use metax.

I've added artwork for a movie I ripped from the DVD, and it shows up in itunes.

But on the Apple TV 2 it still shows the original thumbnail from the ripped .m4v. I've tried both .jpg and .png for the artwork.

Anyone know why this is?

From my experience, if you add artwork in iTunes AFTER having gone through the Apple TV 2 menu and seeing the old artwork (or thumbnail), the Apple TV 2 will remember the old artwork and never show the new one.

The only workaround I know is to go to Settings on the Apple TV and reset it. This is annoying, and means you'll have to set up your network, Netflix, iTunes ID, etc. all over again.

If anyone knows something easier, let me know.

Well I guess you could remove the movie from itunes and then add it back. Anything to force a refresh of the cache of that movie. It would be nice if there was some type of refresh button.

For anything that is a High Def rip I have been getting artwork from Blu-ray.com

Find your movie, click on it and then click on the "Large:Front" link.

They have huge high quality BD case artwork posted on most things (not all).

um...*www.getvideoartwork.com

Surprised it took this long for this site to be mention. It's pretty much exactly what you are looking for. Just about any mainstream movie has artwork on there, both with artwork ripped from iTunes, and custom stuff made to fit the iTunes style.

This is where I go:
http://www.impawards.com/

They have multiple versions of most movies. The images are large. They even have old original theater posters for most vintage films as well. Try it.

I know that this is an old thread... Just putting information here incase anyone gets directed here like I did and finds that some of the links are not working or not as good as other resources.


I use these two to get my artworks:
http://www.valkae.blogspot.ca
http://www.movie-poster-artwork-finder.com - the search sucks on this one so run the search then use cmd+f to search the results.

Both give High Quality iTunes Artworks.
If I can't get one from there (or I don't like the iTunes ones) I just go to google images. Sometimes Amazon as well except they usually have to many badges on their covers

i wish they would use .xml's you would get the artwork and synopsis i think is much better than just a cover.
