    Bonjour!

    So I have a music libary of about 500 un-drmed 320kbps MP3 files, that iTunes has imported and copied to its own folders, and got the Album Artwork for itself (I didn't supply it). However, when I try to use the iTunes Screensaver thingy (Look under screensaver in system preferences), it only comes up with the 8 albums which I have brought from the iTunes Music Store.

    Any ideas?

    For the iTunes Artwork Screensaver to work, the album art has to be embedded into the file rather than the "new way" of being in the Album Artwork folder...

    Ah, you can't do this with MP3 files though, can you?

    I'm fairly certain you can....but I mainly use AAC so I'm not 100%...more like 99%ish.

    You need to take each album, highlight every song and get info for all in iTunes. Then you can drag the album art picture into the art slot. This will copy the art to each song for that album. After that your iTunes should look real nice wth album art and your screensaver will use all the art.

    Thing is though, iTunes allready has lots of nice Artwork.

    I basically took my 500 songs, opened them, iTunes imported them all (they had perfect ID3 tags, which was a godsend) and then I told it to find the album artwork, it went online and got it all and downloaded it.

    So I have the Artwork allready in iTunes, just not on the screensaver?
