I downloaded Fetch Art today. I have over 13,000 songs and everytime I start it it seems like it is going to be days before I can use it because it is trying to download album art for every single song. I would like to do it a little bit at a time so I don't have to leave the computer on 24/7. Does anyone know how to do this?

Is there a better program to do this?

I had the same issue. Use the search tool in iTunes or the browse selectors at the top to identify a subset of songs for which you want to search, highlight them, and then click the fetch art option in the applescripts menu.

I only had about 4000 songs, but after a while, this worked out okay. The other slight nuisance with Fetch Art is that it will try to add art to iTMS songs that already have art, again. :-S And usually the iTMS art is better to begin with. So I was careful not to select those. But I guess it doesn't really matter that much. :eek:
