Find Missing iTunes Album Covers With CoverHunt

Use CoverHunt to Find Missing Album Artwork

One of the best jukeboxes I've ever experienced had an incredible selection of music, but one major drawback: instead of album covers designating each CD, the space where the art would be simply listed the available tracks. I'm not knocking it — burning CDs and then just writing down the information is far more cost-effective than buying hundreds of albums, but the jukebox lost a whole lot of ambiance without the artwork. Sadly, my iPod has become a little bit like that jukebox. Between downloading songs on the fly, receiving files from friends, and importing old CDs, I'm missing a whole lot of album art, which makes the visual album-scrolling feature a lot less exciting.

Luckily there's a solution. If you don't want to pay for a service like TuneUp, you can use CoverHunt, a search engine for album covers. Search the site by artist, album, or song to find the missing artwork to add into your iTunes library. Or, download TidySongs for Mac or PC, a free program that automatically finds missing art, duplicate songs, or missing information in your iTunes library. I'm excited to clean up my album covers — maybe it'll even help me to appreciate the uniqueness of the handwritten jukebox library next time I queue up some songs.

I agree. It doesn't take long to add the album artwork. Google.drag.drop

I don't see the point. You can do a Google Image search on the artist and album name and get the artwork, why bother with a separate search engine?
