I dont seem to have any artwork after doing pressing the get album artwork. I am not sure I want to do it manually using Amazon with 48GB of tunes :eek:

Are there any automated ones that work with just the artist, album and tittle?

You have to have a iTunes store account for "Get Album Artwork" to work. I did my 50+ GB manually (although not all at once). I tried a couple of the get artwork widgets and such, but they didn't work very well for me.

i use this all the time for some of the obscure cds i ripped that didn't have art in the itunes store. its also really good for those cds that itunes sets up with the wrong artwork.

If you want the high-res mostly 600x600 album art that iTunes has, you have to set up an account for the iTunes music store with a credit card...pretty sure on this. You don't have to ever buy anything off the iTunes music store, but this has to be done if you want to use "get album artwork" in iTunes. That's probably the easiest way with the best quality artwork.
