Hi gang,

Receiving an iPhone tomorrow so I've reloaded iTunes ready for it, and have a question.

For some reason, even though Windows Media Player displays artwork for all my albums, iTunes hardle sees any of it. I've tried the 'get album artwork' tab and it's worked for some, but not all. Any idea how to make it all work ?

Ta !

On PC?

The iTunes ability to find artwork is appalling.

First, right click a song and go into the properties, if the artwork isn't there then try this. It'll search through your songs and add them from the Amazon database.

It'll get a few wrong but it should get most and you can fix the rest manually.

Cheers M_E - will give that a go.

EDIT - couldn't get the bugger to install. Found out how to do it the old fashioned way, by right clicking on the offending album, selecting 'get info' and dragging a cover downloaded off google image into the big blank box bottom right of the info window.

That's how I've been doing it for a lot of my album covers, especially to replace the low-quality iTunes album images (yeah, I can be quite picky about that sort of thing).

I found this website very useful for high-res cover art.
