Hi there, ive got a nano on order atm.

Was just wondering how you get the album art into itunes and then onto the ipod?

Does the album art come off the cd when ripping the cd into itunes? and then automatically with the music when put onto the ipod?

Any info on this would be great

Cheers in advance,

Edward

any songs you do not buy from the itunes music store you have to add the album artwork, go to itunes, click the song, go to get info, and you'll see a place where yuou can drag album art form the internet or something...

A Google Image search should do you fine for drag-and-drops

Here's a great site to get the Album Art directly from iTMS. To use it you go to the music store, find the album you want to copy the art from, right click and choose copy URL.

Then go to this site paste the URL and you can get the artwork. I find it to be much better quality than using another program or using Google:

There is a widget on Apple.com that will look up the album art (from Amazon) of the current song you are playing and then apply it to the appropriate songs in your library. Works great - no drag and drop, no pasting.

Where can I find this widget? It sounds really neat!

If this doesn't pan out, is there any easier way to put the artwork on all the songs at one time? It seems non-apple to make it this non-intuitive. I hate copying and pasting 13 times for the same album.

then all you have to do is select all of the tracks, do a "get info" and then you only have to paste it once.
