I was under the impression that this application would help with importing album art into itunes. I not exactly sure how to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I personally haven't used the program you mentioned, but what I do is just ask iTunes to look for the Album artwork, and when it can't find it, I just go to Amazon and copy & paste the covers from there into iTunes.

I have also used the site below to find missing artwork. It's a long page so it takes a while to load.

It will. While playing the songs in iTunes, GimmeSomeTune automatically try to find missing album art - based on the existing metadata (album/artist).

If you are from any of the 22 iTunes countries, you can signup for a free account, and then get all your album art, high res, with just a click.

Drag it from Safari and drop it in to the right hand side where your artwork should show!

Here's a skitch to show you what you are supposed to do. And make sure it is showing the "Selected Track" where I've marked with the circle. And no snooping around for dirty stuff on my Mac

Drag the album art from amazon to the desktop. If its 1 song, highlight it in itunes, right click, get info, artwork tab, drag it there and hit ok.

If its multiple songs, highlight, right click, get info, drag into the artwork box and hit ok.

Ive done this for TONS AND TONS of songs, should work. If not, you are doing something wrong.

While we're on the topic, this software mentioned got me thinking. Is there any software that works that goes more in-depth than iTunes' album art search? I've done the one through iTunes twice, I'm still missing tons (iTunes searches for 4915 pieces of Album Artwork when I do it, and finds none) Obviously, I don't want to search Amazon for a month drag and dropping artwork.

Any tips appreciated thanks

Just make sure your Artist and Album name are properly tagged. Then, close your iTunes window, but keep iTunes active. Hit Advanced > Get Album artwork. iTunes will automatically get the artwork for those which have none.

Not sure if you need to close your iTunes window, but just go with the flow on this one.
