    Finally...I can get back to d/ling hi-res album covers!!!!

    Obviously, you can use iTunes 7's own Album Art finder, but if you want to find some or if that feature doesn't work for you then this is your answer :D

    NOTE: you must type something in both artist and album fields...or else it will come up with 'no results'

    Enjoy....

    Nice work. Would there be any way to get this to work with TV shows on iTunes as well, like the Office or Lost? Thanks a lot.

    Oh, and would it be possible to show the source you're using to accomplish this? I'm really interested to see how it works. :)

    Does this actually get them from iTunes or is it simple loading them from a saved database from when the loophole was open? If it's the 2nd they've been re-compressed as jpeg :confused:

    I think it's actually getting them from iTS. A bunch of people did this before, but then Apple closed off the access and now we know why...they wanted to have people download album art through iTunes, not through a website through iTS.

    I used that loophole and it's open again. It appears when you search for the artwork a downloadkey is included in the properties URL which I assume is some kind of master downloadkey? So it's all coming fresh from iTunes, shame it's US only atm. Some of the US album covers are different/lower res and more compressed than the stuff on the UK itms. Thanks anyway, I'm dowloading ALL my covers again and any for albums I might get in the future :cool:

    This kind of sucks compared to what tpemble's site used to do. Having to type in the exact artist and album and only getting one album is a complete waste of time. Being able to just type in the artist and get the thumbnails for all albums by that artist is such a superior system.
