The Art of the Matter

The latest activity on my list of Ultimate Time Suckers:
Locating and importing album cover art into iTunes.
I’ve only recently started using Cover Flow, and I really love seeing all the album covers. It’s like having a jukebox and art gallery on my desktop. I’ve never seen most of the artwork because honestly? I can’t remember the last time I purchased a real cd. I’ve spent a lot of money at the iTunes store and I like that it’s fast and convenient, but sometimes I miss the liner notes.

The only thing is, whenever a song pops up that doesn’t have a cover, it bothers me enough to cause me to stop whatever it is I’m doing at the moment and immediately go locate and import the missing artwork. Fortunately, iTunes locates most of the artwork automagically. I say ‘fortunately’ because I have about 30 gigs of music spread over three drives. It would be a long, long time before I ever saw the light of day again if I had to locate that much cover art.

    when i got my first ipod, i sat down and made sure the tagging on over 30G worth of files was consistent and correct. and then when i found out i could display album art… oh boy. i do the same thing you do when i find stuff without album art :p
