Scripts to help iTunes collect album art.

Overview

iTunes 7 Helper Scripts... iTunes 7 can fetch album art also for tracks that were not bought from the iTunes Store. A lot of users, including me, have themselves added album art from a third party location (such as some Web site) to tracks that were ripped from CDs. Often this is of quite poor resolution, and it would be nice to replace it with a version from the iTunes Store. Unluckily, this artwork prevents iTunes from fetching a replacement.

Provided are a couple of scripts to help out this situation. Please note that they are designed to work with music libraries that contain only one artwork per song. If you have songs with more than one piece of artwork, the scripts will not work as intended.

Please backup your data before running these scripts. The author takes no responsibility of potential data loss.

Remove third party album art.scpt
This script will go through your iTunes library (or just currently selected tracks) and remove album art that was not downloaded from the iTunes Store. The pictures are saved to allow later retrieval, but please do make a backup yourself as well.

After running this script, you should use iTunes to fetch album art from the iTunes Store.

Restore third party album art.scpt
This script will restore album art removed with the previous script to the tracks that are still missing album covers. It can be run for the entire library or only the currently selected tracks. Also, it can be used to overwrite the covers downloaded from the iTunes Store.

Fill in album artists.scpt
This is an additional script that will fill empty "Artist album" fields with data from the "Album" field.

Dead link. It appears that this dev is the same guy who makes iTunesMyWalkman which is still being maintained. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/19372 Can we ask him to update this page please? Thanks.

This is exactly what I'm looking for; however, when it runs all the artwork is still in place. What am I doing wrong? I simply clicked on the script and ran it. Do I have to place the script in a specific folder? Please advise, I really need to clean up my iTunes. Thanks for the software though!

Nice work. It's helped me replace a large amount of my internet-downloaded covers with a high percentage of success!

This is certianly a step in the right direction. I like how it automatically backs the artwork up. I a couple of requests: 1. If the user could set a minimum resolution for removal. i.e. if the artwork is less than 500x500, remove it. 2. allow the user to tell the script to ignore songs with more than one piece of artwork so the script does not mess up. 3. make a monster script that does the whole thing; remove the art work and then replace it with the itunes store artwork. Thanks, and great job!
