    iTunes will actually do this. Look for "Get Album Artwork" under the "Advanced" menu. I think it'll only pick up stuff that's available in the iTunes Store, though.

    As for what else is out there, I'm not sure...I did all my album artwork by hand.

    It works the best for me. The iTunes "Get Album Artwork" is rubbish, and never does it right. When doing it by hand I can always have the right one, AND a great quality version of it.

    Get the Amazon Art widget. Works a treat.

    All you have to do is search for the album then click 'set as iTunes artwork'

    The problem with using iTunes to get the artwork is that you have to sign up - which involves entering card details.

    You both said that you are doing this manually. You mean googling it? Typing the album's name and getting the pics?

    Oh, i know gimme some tune!! Yeah, it's very good but i'm curious if anyone else knows any other ways because even "gimme some tune" doesn't always
    find covers....!:rolleyes:

    I wiki it. I do this a lot, since I see a lot of no-name bands and buy their merch, and find a lot of obscure non-iTunes stuff.
