    I actually find Amazon to be the best for most artwork.

    Try Wikipedia

    Some of the album artwork, if you click the picture will take you to another page with just the image, often times in much higher resolution.

    I usually just do a Google image search. I don't know if I have ever not found what I was looking for. Just type in artist and album name.

    I usually use Google Images and go to the bands site, if they have a discograghy section.

    Best way to find high quality artwork without any hassle whatsover: Right click on the selected album/song->"Get album artwork".

    That is true. I always try that first but it doesn't always work. So we are helping him find alternatives.

    I have used this and there was something called Corripo or something along those lines that out of nowhere it stopped working entirely.

    after becoming a member of albumartexchange.com, I could never consider any artwork coming directly from the itunes store to be high quality:p

    The song, title, artist has to be exactly formatted as iTunes would have it or it doesn't work. Also, you have to have a song that is present in the iTunes library. Generally speaking at least 20% of my artwork isn't in iTunes.

    I just Google the album's name in Google's image search. Then I pick that picture which has highest resolution -> open it in full size -> right-click + copy image -> paste it to iTunes

    Amazon is usually fairly good. There are programs to automate downloading and embedding the cover into the mp3 too. I use mp3tag (PC) which does the job well.

    I also use a pc program called tag & rename which also pulls the album artwork for you.

    Amazon.com and google are the two places I get 99% of my album artwork.

    Google wins.


    The founders of Google are the 5th richest guys in the USA for a reason.
    Google frickin rocks!

    The numbers.....
    Google founders: Sergey Brin & Larry Page, $18.5 billion each.

    I usually just use google, but am looking for something easier and quicker to find a good image for album artwork.

    AlbumArtExchange.com has the highest quality artwork of any site out there. With 73,000+ images there are a couple of sites with more but those sites clearly have inferior quality. Unlike other sites, AAE's emphasis is on quality, not quantity.
