I've noticed a new feature in iTunes 7... apologies if it was there already and it's just me...

1) If you rip a CD into iTunes, it goes and fetches the cover artwork from the ITMS. Neat!

2) For stuff you've already ripped, you can right-click on the track name and click "Get Album Artwork" and iTunes will go and fetch the artwork, and apply it to all the tracks on the album. It's intelligent enough that you can just select-all your entire library, click "Get Album Artwork" and it'll skip through the tracks which already have artwork, and only fetch the artwork once per album.

Then when you use the Cover Browser mode, all the artwork comes up perfectly instead of lots of blank "Quaver" images.

Way to go, Apple.

Well, thanks for going to the effort of pointing those things out guys, but if you do a search on "iTunes" and "artwork" on these forums and wade through the first 20 or so results, or browse the first page in this topic, you don't find what I posted above. And not everybody sits through the keynotes. Which is why I bothered posting it.

Sorry I was just letting you know, some of the members here don't like it when the forums get crowded. I am not saying they are right, but I myself do like a clean forum.
