Default Free Album Art Cover Downloader

Many portable media players and software players support album cover art which is displayed when a song is played from within the player. Most players unfortunately do not have a feature that automatically searches for and downloads album cover art for the album s that you have stored on your computer. One of the tools that can help you if you like to have album cover art displayed is Album Cover Art Downloader.

Album Cover Art Downloader can be downloaded for Windows, various Linux distributions and as a source code if you want to compile it for yourself. It displays a list of albums that are stored on your computer and offers the functionality to search for album art for that album. It searches Amazon, Buy.com, Yahoo and Walmart for images and displays them in a sidebar. You may pick the best image that fits and it will be automatically downloaded and added to all mp3 files that belong to that album.


You may want to take a look at the flash demonstration which gives a good overview on how to use Album Cover Art Downloader. The author offers a quickstart tutorial which explains the very first steps in using the program, great for a start.
