    Where is the best place to get album artwork for those tracks that iTunes doesn't have.
    I have tried Amazon.com but the artwork always appears with white lines on top and bottom on iPhone and iPod.
    For example, I have cds from Tool, ACDC etc...

    Do you guys get the white lines that I'm talking about though? - when using Amazon?

    It's like the pics are not exactly the right size. What size should pics be for the iPhone coverflow? The slider on the artwork tab is pushed to the max.

    I don't get lines from Google Images or Amazon, but the image is NOT as clear as ones from iTunes store when viewed in Front Row.

    I like to know the answer to this question too. I'm looking for clearer images. Thanks!

    I tend to use play.com for my album artwork, followed by google images.

    Works well for me as most play.com album artwork thumbnails have a larger version which is good enough for me.

    Yes. That's when you use Preview to crop out the nasty white lines.

    (I'm just guessing you're on a Mac)

    you can crop out the white lines with photoshop, but still image is not clear enough for me

    i use 600x600 since thats the itunes art dimensions

    what ac/dc's art do you need? i have most of them in 600x600 if you need them

    The absolute best site on the web for movies and TV is IMDB.com. Nothing comes close!

    Good for Info Yes, but not for Art.
