How many songs do you have in iTunes on your Mac? Hundreds? Thousands? Many thousands? Alright, how many of those songs and albums also have album art?
Chances are very good that you have more songs and albums than you have album artwork to match.
iTunes does a decent job of enhancing your album art collection with automatic downloads of matching album art. What about all those albums you didn’t buy from iTunes? The CDs you ripped to iTunes years ago?
To fill in the gaps of album artwork you need an assistant. Specifically, Marc Liyanage’s highly touted Album Artwork Assistant for Mac iTunes users.
Startup Album Art Assistant and click the Get Albums button.
Sit back and wait. Album Artwork Assistant will dig through the music tracks in iTunes, then grab appropriate album artwork wherever it can be found.
If you know specific tracks in iTunes that do not have associated album art, Album Artwork Assistant can search only those tracks to speed up the search and find process.
Select album art, and click the Add Immediately button or the Add to Queue button (works in the background to add art).
There are plenty of other options but the basics are simple and straightforward. Check music in iTunes. Grab album artwork to match. Insert into iTunes.
It’s yet another free, easy, and fast way to get more album artwork for iTunes on your Mac.
