    did you buy any songs off of iTunes? If so, then those will automatically show artwork. Otherwise, I think you have to import the others in by hand...maybe there is an easier way? I don't know...

    Clutter is an application that gets and displays album artwork (it uses the Amazon.com catalog for the most part). Versiontracker, aka http://www.versiontracker.com, is where you would go to find this and many other software packages for your Mac.

    okay clutter is really neat but how do i get it to like help with the album art on the ipod>?

    edit: finding the album art isnt hte problem. itunes finds it okay. clutter finds it faster and without having to click elsewehre. getting it isnt the problem, getting it onto the ipod is :)

    Once the album art is associated with the track in Itunes, the track will be resync'ed onto the iPod along with the embedded artwork. Then it will display as expected on the iPod.

    alright, i understand how to get album art with clutter, and w here to drag it to in itunes...but attempts to drag the album art over to itunes result int he "floating" image thats supposed to be put ont the desktop for double clicking to listen D:

    edit: also...do i have to drag the effing album art for EVERY song on EVERY albujm!??!?!?

    It's kind of hard to understand what you're asking in the first sentence. The answer to your second question is no. Select a whole album at a time, either in the browser list or by shift clicking all the tracks in an album, then drag the artwork in and iTunes will apply it to all the songs that are selected.

    No. From the Cluuter Menu select the Copy Cover to iTunes option or just use the key shortcut SHIFT-CMD-K. Note: clutter must be the active app for this to work. also (I think) the Clutter Now Playing window needs to be displayed.

    It will copy the album cover for all tracks for that album for you.
