Export Artwork for Mac4.2

17 October 2011

Finds and extracts iTunes album artwork.

What is Export Artwork for Mac

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 looking for a way to compile all your album covers for a database or gallery, here is a solution to export Artwork back into it's own file.

What's new in Export Artwork

Version 4.2:
  • Maintenance release for OS X 10.7 Lion compatibility.

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.

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.

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!

I love this software, but in the new update (3.8.1) when I check the "Fetch album cover images from:" button I get an AppleScript Error "window "w_main" doesn't understand the check_netActive message. (-1708)"

Some users have been experiencing problems with version 3.8, where the application would timeout when getting the list of tracks. In the "About Export Artwork" dialog, if version 3.8 is listed, please update to revision 3.8a by re-downloading. Please also read the updated FAQ on the website.

The download link will now get you pre-release version 3.0pr8 which seems stable enough on both Jaguar and Panther. Work is under way for the final release of version 3.0 which may include other new features... if you want support for processing tracks directly from an iPod, SHOUT NOW!

I bought "Export Artwork" because the 100 artwork limit. After Paying with Paypal I got a reciept from Paypal and nothing from Dizzy Penguin. I have emailed them 3 times and get no response. Don't buy this if you don't want to get ripped off. Also it retreves the wrong cover alot.

Thanks to user feedback, an issue in the first pre-release of version 3.0 has been dealt with. The download will now get you version 3.0pr3 which fixes a problem with image files not being saved under Panther and an error occuring in Jaguar. Thanks for your feedback, and apologies for the run around.

Hmm, I dunno. I told it to find cover art for 100 tracks, fetching the art from amazon.com, and to store it in the album folders as .JPG files. I clicked Start. It went through all the files, didn't fetch anything, and reported no cover art found, none downloaded. Tried to adjust the settings and try again, and it said that was it, my trial period was over unless I shut everything down and log out and log in again. So as far as I can tell, the useful function--downloading cover art--doesn't actually work.

News Info I'm currently adding a feature or two and ironing out some bugs in the next version of the script. Just to wet your appetite (and to please those who requested it), version 2 of Export Artwork *will* support extracting to jpeg and png!
