    Anyone know how to copy the iTunes Album Art of the current playing song to a folder?

    could you create a smart folder in finder with criteria of like "any .jpg files within music<itunes<itunesmusic" ?? i don't know why you need the files, but that may work.

    Thanks, I just want the art for the active song, though

    Ultimately, I'll have the script grab the album art and send it via ftp to my web space so that my web site will always show the song I'm listening to (within error range of how often I tell the script to run)

    I've been looking at a couple of different scripts and I'm thinking I may be best to export all Artwork to my FTP space and then use AppleScript to query the current track which it exports in a HTML file with a table that includes a link to the image which I somehow match with the track info.

    This kind of crosses that line between the Programming forum and Web forum but I think the fact that I need to work through the AppleScript side of it keeps it here.

    Any ideas on this would be really appreciated
