Wanna take advantage of the artwork feature in iTunes 7. I have noticed some/most of my artwork is blurry.. :mad:

Is there a way I can just throw away all of the art so I can start again, without doing a track at a time!!!!

Go to your music library
Select All
Get Info
Click the artwork checkbox.

It should work (I didn't try as I don't want to lose all my artwork), but might take a couple of minutes to do, depending on the size of your library.

The guy above me is correct. It took me about 45 minutes, but my library is huge. Be advised though, the new get artwork feature doesn't work very well. Hopefully they'll fix it in the future.

There is a Clear Downloaded Artwork in the contextual menu when you select songs and right click (or Ctrl Click). It seems you have to select multiple songs for this to show up.

So simple when you know. I've only 1800 songs so didn't take too long. Of note, after I clcked and it took away my art, its kept all of the artwork that was just put on for me! :)

That only works for artwork downloaded from itunes already, and not that which you put on.
