How do you find your album art?

I was wondering where everyone gets their album art from?

I used to search amazon.com but last week, I found this album art search.

Any other good sites out there?

When I first did all my non-iTMS tracks, I'd been using Synergy for a while so I just looked in its folder for all the album covers and applied them back to iTunes.

Now I use the Album Art widget if a song comes up that doesn't have a cover associated with it and it adds the art to the song/album if I want to.

Pimping your new site? Fix the glaring typo on the home page. Not to mention the broken links. Sorry, this hasn't passed Auality Control.

Ahem..

Another option is Clutter, which can do an automatic search of Amazon and import the pictures into iTunes.

Fair point - didn't bother clicking on the link so the sarcasm went way over my head.

That is what I use to find my album art and it works great. I havent had any issue with finding the art for any of my albums.

I use a dashboard widgit and it see's what track is playing in my itunes and loads the image from that album. Simply click on to apply and it applies the image to that album. Painless, quick and efficient..

The widget took too long. I just spent a couple of days going through all my albums making sure that there was album art. IF there wasn't, I let google images do the work. That worked out better b/c I could pick the resolution and image that I wanted. Plus, if there wasn't an album, I could choose the appropriate pic...

I use this http://tpemble.urfbownd.net/itunes/itunes-search.php. just copy the link from the iTMS artwork and paste it on the space provided. I also use http://www.allmusic.com for songs from my CDs or downloads from other sites.

Manually from Amazon or even scanned if I can't find it - I'm a bit fussy about quality and accuracy of covers!

It's a peach - it's probably one of the best apps on my iBook - smart, simple and fast...

Apple should buy this from the developer and build a new menu entry into iTunes alongside 'Get CD Track Names'

Google images is great for finding lots of indie stuff that might no longer be on amazon and was never on iTMS. You can often find a review of a CD or even the artist's page that has the cover on it. I've had to go that route or even scan my own for lots of my CDs.

Every CD I have ever typed into google images has come up so I don't see the point for using these other programs or sites.

Consistency is a big deal for me in my album art. I like mine 300x300 and clear and bright. Many of the images I can find on Google images are not up to the consistent quality and consistency I find from the other sources.

Sometimes I don't like what I find on iTMS so I go t Amazon or vice/versa.

FetchArt is fantastic for getting large numbers of 'arts' in a very short time - try it, it will save you hours. I google imaged the albums that it couldn't find, and agree this is a fine way to go, but it's very time consuming. FetchArt does it all with a a couple of clicks and then you're only left with the obscure ones to find manually.

If i was scoring it, I'd give it a thoroughly deserved five mice.

Hello all...new the forum.

Anyway, I use iTunes for windows and I'm about to upgrade my current 3G iPod with a new 30GB Black 5G. I am now going through all my music files to make sure I have the right album art for each song/album.

I've read in this thread different ways to get album art, some being for Mac's some for windows, some just using Google and Amazon, but I did a google search and came up with this site....

iTunes Art Importer 0.9.2

I was wondering if anyone here has used this site and/or if anyone has anything good or bad to say about it.

Thanks for you help.
