    Speedy but not very useful - how do I use this artwork as my wallpaper? Is there's not a folder somewhere?

    Nope... when you add album art to a song it adds that to the music file itself (like I said in the "useless" post above ;))... you can copy it from the album art window in iTunes, though, by right/ctrl-click the art (see attachment)... then you can use e.g. Preview to make a new file from clipboard...

    If you want album art (of fairly high quality = wallpaper size) you need to look elsewhere... unless you want to make a collage like the iTunes screen saver or something... :)

    Search "tpemble" in Google and you'll find a resource to download the iTMS artwork. Making it into a collage is up to you.

    Now that I think about it, Apple would be my best friend if they would release a desktop just like the screen saver with updating artwork.

    Apple already is my best friend, so maybe they'd be my bestest, bestest friend. Oh wait...

    I don't want to be friends with those sleaze-balls. Only Apple. :)
