    I just used iAlbumArt to import artwork for all of the albums in my library. It worked fairly well, but I've just discovered that much of the artwork on Amazon isn't exactly the right size for the frame in iTunes. Is there a way to have iTunes automatically resize any image I insert to fit perfectly?

    To add to this, where does the default iTunes artwork come from? Their artwork is always perfectly sized and will automatically conform if you adjust its size in iTunes. If only there were default artwork for every CD...

    I don't mean artwork from iTMS, just any artwork I import. Typically, artwork from Amazon seems to be oddly sized (i.e. there is a small strip of white to the right of or below the artwork.)

    You have to manually bring the artwork into a paint program and crop it to equal dimensions. iTunes won't do it.

    I haven't come across any software that will do it automatically.

    Well, I have added a "SquareUp" flag to my m4a command line tagging program http://sourceforge.net/projects/atomicparsley. You would do something like this in Terminal.app:

    Code:
    export PIC_OPTIONS="SquareUp:removeTempPix"
    AtomicParsley /your.m4a --artwork /path/to/your.jpg
    ...and a new file will (should) get written with the squared up artwork.

    No, it's not a 'POS spam'. The site stopped functioning after Apple got wind of it and updated iTunes. Not surprising, given that you've resurfaced a thread from 6 YEARS AGO.

    Best source of artwork (if you want up to 1500x1500) is albumartexchange.com

    Takes longer to manually do it, but it's worth it..... ;)
