    iTunes sucks. It is a very old software that have never been really improved for years.
    It would be very more useful if you could get the cover atwork of *only* the selected album.
    In the way that iTunes work, any time that you need an album artwork it will scan all your library…
    Try to imagine this when you have more than 4000 albums………

      You can. Just right-click the offending album in grid view mode and select ‘Get Album Artwork’ from the menu. I use this all the time if I don’t want to wait for iTunes to scan every album for artwork just to get one new album to fill in.

      Yes This feature sucks and is annoying and discourages you from using it when you have thousands of albums (It takes too long). You guys seem to improve i tunes every 2 minutes. Improve this.

    I think for people with a bigger iTunes-Library then 13-Albums shuld use TuneUp Media für 15$ per Year

    warning – Itunes will check your ENTIRE music library, not just the missing album. So if you have a lot of mp3 files this can take a long time. I’ve found it much easier to place my own jpgs if I’m only missing a few images. (just do a get info on the song(s) in itunes).

    better way for just a few randoms in the library is to right click the song and select get album artwork.

    Theres a few methods out there but this is surely the go to method to get started with. From there you have several options, but I surely wish this wasn’t such a difficult task when you have large quantities of songs.

    If only I could tell iTunes to check each Album Folder for an image file of artwork.
    I just got a working copy of iTunes Media Folder copied onto my music ssd plugged into an Airport Extreme. I share the Album Artwork and Library database between a PC desktop a MacBook Pro and 2 other laptops. Just change the iTunes Media folder location to the copied over folder on the Airport Extreme. My 12,700 songs are a lot of work to maintain between my 4 computers without the LAN music drive on the Airport Extreme. The Get Album Artwork checkbox stays unchecked along with the Automatically Retrieve Track Names. Bugs like appending a Track name with artist info is not welcomed so I check it all manually.

    Doing it manually is the way to go for me. Custom.
