Decode iTunes 7 .itc files to .png or .jpg files.

Overview

ArtDeCodex allows you to decode iTunes 7 .itc files into plain old .png or .jpg files so you can use them outside of iTunes.

Prior to iTunes 7 and coverflow, these artwork files were stored as id3 data. Since coverflow was introduced in iTunes 7, Apple has adopted the opaque and largely unreadable .itc format for files in the ~/Music/iTunes/AlbumArtwork folder.

With ArtDeCodex, you can easily translate these files to regular png or jpg files and save them where you choose.

Re: Is it really needed? Thanks Matthew, a good question. It seems that a few people are downloading it... It only took a few hours to write, it's free, so no harm done... if alternative methods work for you, I say go for it!

Yes, some people need this. The other way mentioned is way tedious and this program does it in batch. There are mobile players out there that need album art in a specific folder to work and this program does the job. Good job developer. Now, if someone could only write a program to rip all the album artwork from inside the id3 tags (in itunes) and put it in a folder.
