    Is there an easy way to get all the album art for your music, fast?

    Like all at one, maybe even free?

    If ya want free then ya better grab a 6 pack of rockstars and prepare you browser for a serious Google overload. Especially if ya got a shiit load of music. Trust me, I've been there. And the obscure albums... ouch. Finding good cover art for those and at a good size (rez) is, shall we say close to miraculous.

    well ..if you had an itunes account its quite simple ... you hit the "find album art" tab and presto.

    If you dont use itunes ... use amazon music ..copy/paste the album art from there to your song file.

    heres an example (Primus - Sailing the Seas of Cheese). All the info you need is there for proper labeling. Song titles in order, date released, artist, songwriters ..ect.

    BUT>>> if you are looking for an image of the actual compact disk itself .... that i have been trying to figure out myself for a long time.

    I use itunes, but don't have an account, cause it cost money, and don't you have to pay for the album art you download from them?

    I have most of the cd's that are in my library, just the art isn't on the computer. I have done the google thing in the past, and it sucks lol. I thought by now there would be some cool way of getting all.

    Alright, I guess I have a boring weekend coming up lol.

    There was a good site, www.thejosher.net/itunes, but Apple did some things to their iTMS so it doesn't work again for the time being. Only a select few albums still show relatively hi-res images.

    Can't you just tag the albums you want, and then get new info/including album art? I know several players will do this. I also think there is an app that will do this for you, it resolves around the CDDB or gracenote.
