    Converting Itunes Artwork to LMS ? ...............................

    I set up a RPi for a friend of mine. He had a lot of Music stored in Itunes.... I copied the Itunes Folder on his Apple to a Drive and took it home to convert to LMS.... I seemed to have got all the Music stored by Artist>Album>Track..... No Artwork however.

    I noticed that under his Itunes Folder there is another folder called 'Album Artwork', however none of it makes any sense to me... (i.e. Files Windows Cannot Open etc.) So, my Question: Is there a straightforward way to Get the artwork into the proper Albums? Not necessary, but it would be nice.

    I don't have a direct answer to your question, but I do know a solution you can use. It is called PerfectTunes and it will find missing album art for you and fix tags if you wish it to.

    It is a dBpowerAmp co-product from Illustrate. It found proper art for over 2000 of my CDs.

    Years ago I used this program to automatically take artwork from the itunes database and embed into each file. It worked in a batch (automated) way and outcome was perfect. Easy to use. I think it cost $5.

    iTunes puts the artwork into its own database when you use iTunes' "get album artwork" command. I have used one of Doug's Apple Scripts for iTunes, either "Embed Artwork" or "Re-Embed Artwork", to fill what turns out to be artwork gaps in my library. Works very well!
