    Does anyone know of a program or iTunes plug-in that automates the process of getting album art for multiple songs BESIDES the "Get Album Art" feature in iTunes? I just don't want to give the iTunes Store my credit card info, which is what I'll have to do to access the "Get Album Art" feature. I've found a few programs but they seem to only allow you to add album art manually, one song at a time, which I'll probably be doing for the next 2 years for all my songs... There must be some way of getting album art for people who don't use iTunes or who simply don't want to sign up for the iTunes Store...

    Thanks all.

    I've never tried it, but there is a script on this page that may do it :)

    I tried the script but unfortunately it only searches one song at a time and I have to manually drag the artwork into iTunes. Thanks for your suggestion, though.

    You can also sign up with the iTunes store with a ClickandBuy account , not your credit card. I did that because I dont have a credit card. That way , you don't have to give them your CC info. But the Get album art feature sucks sometimes, the meta data has to be correct to get the album art.

    I used to go to amazon.com for album art, but found that a lot of their stuff is pretty low res, so I go to http://rateyourmusic.com/ now, and it seemingly has all the albums you could look for, even some bootleg Doors stuff I had surprisingly enough. It may not be as ideal as a program that automatically does it, but it is a nice alternative if you are willing to put the time in.

    Thanks for the link. Should come in handy for some of my low-res album work.

    I'm still looking for an automated program if anyone know of one.

    Thanks!

    Don't know of one for Mac. Oodles for me though. Is it worth Boot Camping?

    But you have to go to a payzone & put money into the account
