Fetch Art for iTunes is a small program that will fetch album art for one or more songs using Amazon's XML interface, allow you to preview the art that was found, and add the art you want to iTunes. The program is controlled through the iTunes Script menu: once it is installed, album art can be downloaded by selecting one or more songs in iTunes and choosing "Fetch Art" from the Script menu. It doesn't require an account to get art and works from any country.

What's New

Version 2.6.0:
  • Fixed a problem introduced with iTunes 10.2 where iTunes handles picture files differently now.
  • Slight performance increase in handling larger groups of files.
  • Changed the warning dialog from over 500 music files to over 1000. Let me know if it's fast enough that I should increase that even more. It tends to slow down with more music selected.

Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.4 or later
  • iTunes 7.0 or later
  • Intel or PowerPC Macs supported

Why does this installer install the script into the root Scripts folder (/Library/iTunes/Scripts) instead of the user's Scripts folder (/Users/(name)/Library/iTunes/Scripts)? Not good practice. iTunes wouldn't even recognize the script in this location. I had to manually move it into the iTunes Scripts folder at the user level in order for it to show up in the scripts menu. This installer looks like it still needs some tweaking.

I'm contacting MacUpdate to see why the download link hasn't been updated. Bear with me here, I expect it to be fixed in 24 hours.

10.6.2 | iTunes 9.0.3 | Fetch Art 2.5.4 - Fetch Art now only applies album art to the first selected song, of many selected songs. Fetch Art worked fine under the previous version of iTunes, 9.0.2.

Finally! The only tool (and I tried a dozen) that lets me batch download the album art for my complete library AND embed it into the songs (so the album art isn't only visible in iTunes).

And it works almost flawlessly too! Worth your donations (instead of paying for an inferior tool..)

Some possible improvements: manually selecting an alternative image + grouping by album so you don't have to select all tracks individually.

Using this recently, I found a few things:
Firstly, it's really slow. Yes I am trying it out on an older mac, but it runs even more slowly than other applications.
Secondly, during the "Copying Art to iTunes" phase. I am getting a lot of errors that read:

"Error reading file MacHD:Users:myusername:Library:Application Support:FetchArt:AlbumName.jpg.pict."

Thirdly, it's kind of clunky. I mean, why do I want to build a list, then have to select all and tell it to copy into the song? Don't I just want to select the song/s and choose "FetchArt" from the scripts menu and have it find the album art and embed it into the song?
GimmeSomeTune works this way, but without all the errors.

I have just downloaded this latest version of Fetch Art and installed it. At least I got the message "Software Successfully Installed" at the end of the process. But when I looked for the application in my "Applications" folder, it was nowhere to be seen at all. Remembering the bizarre problem that I had had in the past with Fetch Art, I then looked for my "Tune-Instructor" application icon in the Applications Folder. On double-clicking it - to my utter amazement - Fetch Art launched, and NOT "Tune-Instructor". Mr Developer, it is now quite plain - as I asserted some months ago - that your application interacts/conflicts significantly and adversely with the application "Tune-Instructor". Please do look into this absurd situation promptly please. For now I have had no choice but to trash both the Fetch Art and the Tune--Instructor applications. Goodness only knows what is the matter with the Fetch Art installer and why it interferes with the other application.
