    Question Program to download CD Covers to MP3 album directories

    Hey,

    Does anyone know of a program, or a script that will parse your directory of MP3s and grap the Artist, and Album Title then retrieve a thumbnail of the CD cover from the web and place it in the folder?

    Tag & Rename should do what you want. It retrieves the album art from Amazon. It's not completely automatic. There are also some programs written by members here that download the cover artwork. I remember one was written by hijinks21: Album art downloader and the other was written in JAVA I can't remember by who. Search will help you find them.

    That was written by me

    http://www.toiletduck.me.uk/artgrabber.html is the URL for my app, it does pretty much what you say, its not perfect, but it should grab something for most results, then once its done you just need to tidy up anything it hasnt done or has got wrong. It assumes that your music folders are in the order: Artist -> Album -> [songs]

    the way it *should* work is you click on the button, it downloads the art (this bit might take a while) then when its finished it should say how many it downloaded, meaning its done.

    If its still not working post again, and i'll take a look at it tomorrow and fix it

    I would like to know if ther is any art dowaloader that actually retrieve artist / album from the ID3 tag and save one jpeg per mp3 - I do not split my MP3s by album/artist. Maybe I am abnormal?

    Frodo was talking about a program that I think will do this-I think it was called MusicBrainz.
