Because I have lots of it and I want to direct my Screen Saver to it but it's not in: User/Music/iTunes/Album Art I've tried searching for it in other TuneUp folders but to no avail.

Can anybody help?

it is most likely stored inside the actual tags of the music file itself, not in any accessible form.

there is a built in iTunes Screen saver inside system preferences.

Rob is right, Tune Up, and other software like it (Coverscout) actually add the cover art to the tags of the files, and don't store it separately. I actually prefer that method.

Many thanks for your replies.
Yes I know I have a Screen Saver and I'm trying
to make it "see" my cover art. ( As it did before I started using TuneUp
when all my cover art was in the Album Art folder.)
Is there any way I can make it "see" the art files taged to my music files?

The only way would be to drag the cover art from iTunes into your screensaver folder or the iTunes artwork folder I guess.

So this means that TuneUp users can't easily use their Album Art as a Screen Saver?
Strange.

Correct, unless there's a setting within iTunes that I haven't noticed. I haven't looked.
I'll do some experimenting later if I have time, and get back to you.
