Export Artwork has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 
Export Artwork is an application for use with iTunes on Mac OS X. It's main function is to extract the Artwork from the selected track's ID3 tag and copy it to an image file in a chosen location. It is also a fully fledged Artwork manager as it can fetch album covers over the Internet and embed Artwork to the ID3 tag, making it a great tool to update your cover collection as your music library grows.

For those of you who have already filled your library's worth of mp3 / m4a (AAC) files with the Artwork, but want to remove it from the ID3 tag to keep the file size down, and still keep all those album covers, or if you're more...

What's New

Just a note to emphasise that version 4.2 requires a minimum of Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and is 10.7 (Lion) compatible). For Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) users, stick to version 4.1.11 available here: http://dizzypenguin.com/etc/ExportArtwork4111.zip

Not sure how to add this to 'Related Links'...

I spent a lot of time organizing my album artwork for my iTunes library, 5000+ songs. I copied my music to a linux system I have, but it does not recognize any of the artwork. This app is perfect for extracting artwork and saving them as jpegs. I will be paying for the full app soon.

Some facts you might want to know before downloading or paying for this:

- on a 1.33 Ghz Powerbook, Export Artwork needed 15.31 minutes to treat an iTunes library of 2000 songs.

- on a total of 401 albums, Export Artwork found 147 illustrations (36.7 %), of which 24 were just wrong.

I know Amazon does not sell everything and i did not expect Export Artwork to find 100% of the lot. And, to be fair, it is hard for me to say if the errors are due to Amazon or Export Artwork. What i know is that it is a pain to check every single downloaded illustration to see if it is the good one. You end up spending as much time as if you had searched for them "manually".

So, before paying for this, you should have an eye on this free service: http://www.patrickmoberg.com/artie/

I used to love this program about a year ago, but hell if I can figure out how it works today. You've got to create a folder in the system, hold down option keys et al. Geez, if I didn't know any better this was written for a pc. Sorry, gotta look elsewhere.

Well [Anonymous], it hasn't changed that much in the past year that a previous user wouldn't be able to use it anymore. The application works fine with its default settings, and also provides a wealth of options to suit a wide variety of needs. All of which are pretty well documented in the Help files (if one ever reads them).

And to think that developers spend time and effort to offer more options, often at user request, and then some user(s) complain(s) about that!

Some settings are accessible via [alt+click] because they complement an initial setting, they alter the behaviour of that setting, they may be less used and also in order not to clutter the interface. Mac OS X itself and many OS X applications make wide usage of the [alt] key... and some of those hidden options can be pretty nifty.

Time to RTM!

I've been using this App. for some considerable time. It's great. It simply performs, faultlessly, endlessly. What more could you wish for?

I love this utility, but recently I have not been able to click the start button. I select the tracks I need artwork for, but the Start button never lights up.

If you have any issues with the trial version, why not contact me directly for help and assistance? You are more likely to get a response via email communication then via this comment board. And if you are a registered customer, than I see no reason why you wouldn't get in touch with me.

Contact details are available in the 'Read Me' document and on the web site.

Thanks to the kindness of the developer, if you just want to remove all the artwork from your iTunes library, you don't need to register to delete all the artwork in one go - no track limit set for that.

The >Anonymous (2/29/04)< reviewer is absolutely correct, you can click and drag artwork. However, tell me kiddo, how long would it take you to implement 225 titles using such a methodology? Export Artwork can do it in less than ten minutes! It's a lovely little app. Believe me!
