    hi,

    looking to organize my ITUNES library, this includes getting album art, CD names and etc automatically. anyone know of a program that does this? freeware... that does this.

    if your anything like me and really anal about your itunes library please share the knowledge...

    i have gimmesometune but it doesnt fix certain files that dont have album names and etc. gimmesometunes works on the condition that you have most of the information correct... it provides the album art.

    anything that fixes the text as well as the album art for you?

    thanx

    iTunes: Advanced > Get CD track names

    iTunes: Advanced > Get album artwork

    That usually does it for me. However, if the artwork is not on iTunes, I'll just Google it and then paste it in.

    When I rip a new CD I usually grab the artwork from walmart.com (of all places). They seem to have the best quality, highest resolution images of anywhere. Amazon has artwork for more obscure stuff, but it's often low res, or not square, or branded with some annoying "15% off" logo or something.

    And, naturally, anything bought from iTunes Music Store comes already filled out and with artwork.

    Shift click the first song, shift click the last song. Then do the advanced thing to add picture and album (I believe you can do that with your right mouse menu)

    tried that but it wont fix the text also. i have a lot of files without the album name and the artist name. it's all bunched up in the song name portion.

    How about TuneUp that is being advertised below? (At least is was on mine) I've never used it but it seems to do what you want.
