    I think he just means going to Amazon, searching for the album, then dragging the cover art into iTunes.

    If you select all the songs from the album, then ctrl click and Get Info, you can drag the artwork from amazon's site to the little Artwork box under Info.

    you don't even have to do that, you can right click copy image in the browser, then where the album art is displayed under your playlists (if its enabled) you can right click it and go paste. even easier than dragging and opening a menu :o

    I use a Itunes widget that looks up an album cover in Amazon and then automatically sets the picture as an album art in itunes.

    I used to do it that click and drag way, but then I realized this. 10x easier this way.

    I never had luck w/ any plug ins or programs, some of the stuff I listen to is pretty obscure and those could never find things.

    That will do an entire album? I thought it only did it per track...I even tried shift selecting all songs in an album but couldn't get this to work. Where am I failing? :hs:

    Make sure you have "Selected Item" on instead of "Now Playing" if you have the preview window up. At least that messed me up a few times.

    Cover Scout is what I've been using. Works well if you have a huge music library. Shows you all the albums that are missing artwork.
