Ask and ye shall receive. This weekend, while moving my entire iTunes library from one machine to another, I noticed how few of the Albums in my collection had the all important “Album Art” (ok so not exactly a critical component for organizing or playing back digital music but if you have songs from the likes of Jessica Simpson or Lindsay Lohan just about the only good thing about the album is the half naked pictures of them on the cover). While my schedule isn’t quite as hectic as your average former Mouseketeer I still didn’t see myself taking countless hours out of my free time to manually download the appropriate pics and plugging them into my iTunes library.
Well LifeHacker.com points out a cool utility from YVG Software Services called ‘iTunes Art Importer’ that does all the work for you.
“iTunes Art Importer for Windows automagically adds album cover images to your iTunes library. Select songs in your iTunes library and the importer will grab album cover images from Amazon.com. If you trust the importer to choose the right albums (it’s pretty good), select all your songs, check off “Auto-import best guess” and watch it go. The iTunes Art Importer works well and seems to be free but it does require the monstrous Microsoft .NET framework to run (link to download at the Importer site).” [Via LifeHacker.com]
Give it a shot and let us know how it works in the comments section.
