    Certain albums ive added on have very large album art, which looks really really nice on here whereas most of my other album art is 300x300 or 500x500 pixels, which gets pixellated at full size on the ipad. discogs.com seems a pretty good source for larger album art, but are there any other sites that may help?

    Thanks!

    I get the majority of mine from Amazon via Tag & Rename (Windows). Not only does it look good on my iPad but looks great on my 50" Panasonic when playing music in iTunes. Occasionally when I notice pixelated album art, I just search the album title in Google Imagea then grab the highest resolution art.

    I actually don't have any music on my iPad (I have a good stereo)

    But... can't you turn the album art off, or stop full-screen mode?

    What does one of those have to do with the other? I have an awesome TV and still have movies and TV shows on my iPad....and iPhone.

    Yes. But what is your point?

    Look for 500x500 and above in Google images. The ones I can't get on the web I scan at 600dpi.

    iTunes downloads art work that size now that looks great on iPad.

    Just remove your existing artwork and click on the download artwork.

    That's very easy!

    My main way of getting artwork for importing CDs i bought were to import them into itunes, select thealbum right click get album art work.
    click in the left corner where the artwork is in iTunes. shift command 4 + spacebar and get a screen shot of the artwork.
    do a quick crop in Preview and you got a copy of the actual artwork that once you drag into the Album art box in itunes will stick with the album no matter where you transfer it to and from.

    Its ALOT easier than searching the net for who knows what quality they are or scanning in album art.

    Also, the resolution of the size of the iTunes art you screencap depends on your monitor. so on a iMac 27 it will be significantly larger and ahve the highest quality.
    though even on the 13" macbook pro it will come out to about 744x744 and it still looks great on the ipad which is what i did with my entire library of over 1500 albums that i imported.



    Sometimes it doesnt stick when syncing from iTunes to your iPad, iPhone, Touch, etc..
