ITunes :: Embedded Album Artwork Not Displaying In Album List Or Cover Flow

Feb 26, 2012

I keep my large music collection on an external drive connected to an Airport Extreme in my home. I've embedded all my album artwork in the music files, and previously all the album artwork was displaying perfectly in iTunes. After upgrading to iTunes 10.5, however, most of my albums are missing the album art in the album list and Cover Flow. I know that the art is still in the file because it shows up in the "Now Playing" box in the lower left corner of the screen. The only way I have found to get the album art to show up again in the album list and Cover Flow is to go through the following steps:  Control-click the first track of an album for which the cover art is not displaying correctly. From the context menu that appears, select Get Info.Click on the Artwork tab, then click Cancel. 

Now the artwork shows up in iTunes in all views. I called Apple Support and asked if there's a faster way to fix the issue with the database. Manually fixing each album for hundreds of albums is no fun. Telling iTunes to Get Album Artwork doesn't work because most of my music was not purchased from iTunes but was ripped from CDs I already own. It's very frustrating because I already spent hours finding and embedding the hi-res album art in my files. I paid extra for Apple products because I expect them to at least avoid corrupting my databases.

ITunes :: Unknown Album In Cover Flow For Movies With Extras

Feb 4, 2012

I have purchased a number of HD and SD movies that include iTunes Extras.  All but one of the these movies show as Unknown Album in Cover Flow (under the artwork).  The detailed listing in iTunes reflects the correct names.  The correct names show up on my iPad and Apple TV.  I have worked with Apple Support, to include a senior advisor.  We have tried the following at least once and they now tell me they have exhausted all the possible solutions. Confirmed information in Get Info was correct.Changed the information in Get Info.Re-downloaded the movies after deleting the problem movies.  This was done multiple times.Reinstalled Mac OS.Deleted and reinstalled iTunes. 

A few observations. When I delete the Extras from iTunes the title under the artwork for the movie in Cover Flow shows the correct title.The one movie that is correct has one artwork poster for the movie and one artwork poster for Extras.  All others have only one artwork poster and appears to share the same artwork poster.The file size represented in iTunes detail listing for the Extras is significantly lower than the file size on my hard drive.  The same can be said for the movies (all movies, not just those with Extras), but not to the same degree.  For example, one Extras in iTunes is 13mb in the detail listing and on the hard drive it is 772mb.  This example and all Extras work correctly.

ITunes :: Incorrect Album Artwork For Spider-Man Album?

May 7, 2012

For some reason, when I download the album artwork from iTunes for "Music from and Inspired by Spider-Man," it instead shows artwork for "Ethnicali: Music Inspired by the Golden State." I don't even have that album. There was another album of mine that iTunes applied the wrong artwork to as well, but I can't remember it off-hand. In any case, does anybody have any suggestions as to what I could do to fix this issue. I already submitted feedback to Apple about the problem as well.

ITunes :: Add Artwork To A Whole Album?

May 5, 2012

How do you add artwork to a whole album? When I select an album in grid view and choose Get Info, the Get Info window does not show the artwork tab, like what shows when I select a single song. There is a tiny little Artwork window in the Info tab, but I want to add multiple artwork to this (dragged in from the Finder), front, back and inside album art.If I select a single song in that album and choose Get Info, then I see the artwork tab, but the artwork I drag in applies only to that song (the album art appears in the Now Playing pane only when that song is playing).How do you add artwork to a whole album?

Applications :: Can't Add Album Artwork To ITunes 9

Nov 15, 2009

I've been trying to figure out how to add album cover to .flac and .aiff files for a while. When I try to add it to .flac, it just shows "Album cover not modifiable" and when I try to add it to .aiff files, it does it, but then when I quit iTunes and restart it, it's gone again.

Is this a bug or it just not possible to add album cover to them?

Btw: Audiophile, would prefer .flac or .aiff over .mp3

ITunes For Mac :: Can't Change Artwork For Album

Jun 23, 2014

I'm in the process of writing, recording, and producing an album, and I've run into a little snag in iTunes: I have one song finished and in iTunes so far, and it's under the name of my album. I put my name, the date, all other album information, but it won't let me change the album artwork. Under "get info" for both the album and the song, the "artwork" pane is grayed out and I can't change it. I have the artwork on my computer and just want to put it in there so I can see the cover next to the songs,

ITunes :: Why Won't The Album Artwork Appear On Ripped Music

Apr 6, 2012

The issue I am having is with iTunes. It is fully updated to the latest version and so is my laptop software updates. All I do is rip the music off of my purchased CD from any retail store, but the problem I'm having is when it finishes, all the songs are single and only 1 of the songs will get the album information. How can I combine or sort them all together under one(the one with the album artwork)?

Applications :: Where Does ITunes Store Album Artwork Files?

Apr 22, 2009

I can click on the album artwork in iTunes (8.0.2) and it will display the larger version of an album cover, but I can't right click and copy it, or display the actual file in the finder. Sometimes I want to copy the artwork for an email, forum, etc. and don't want to always use Grab to make a screenshot. Where are the album files stored on my Mac?

ITunes For Mac :: Album Artwork Shows Up On Songs But Not On Albums?

Aug 22, 2014

I thought my album artwork was disappearing. Turns out the problem is a bit different (and weirder) than I thought it was. 

When I look at the Album view in iTunes and see all the albums in a tile/grid layout, there are some albums that show no artwork. These just have the default gray cover with thingy on it. But when I click on one of these album covers and see the songs, all of them *do* have artwork. When I play these songs, I also see the artwork. It's only at the album level that I don't.

Applications :: Remove Album Artwork From Songs NOT ON ITunes Library

May 9, 2009

I copied a lot of songs to my cell phone so I can here them wherever I go. However, i noticed that because of the album artwork, I couldn't copy as much songs as I wanted. Is there away I can remove the artwork embedded in the mp3 files WITHOUT reimporting them back to iTunes? I don't want to remove the artwork from the iTunes library, just from the phone card. Is there a separate application that can batch-handle ID3 tags and artwork? i copied the songs from my macbook to the m2 memory stick using a usb adapter so i can use the songs on my ericsson. I think it is really annoying that iTunes requires songs to be in the library to handle them. I could really use a separate application or a script/folder action that would do the trick - freeware or shareware

Applications :: How To Stop ITunes 9 From Embedding Album Artwork In Every Track

Jan 30, 2010

Is there a way to stop iTunes from embedding artwork into every file(track), and instead store 1 copy per album?

From what I remember thats the way cover flow used to work. Why the switch to embedding artwork in every file? A extra 20+MB per album is just ridiculous(Using a 800x800 PNG).

I know its possible to store the album artwork without embedding it in the file. Because I have a few older albums that still use the old method (storing only a single copy of the artwork in /iTunes/Album Artwork/).

ITunes :: Artwork Missing After Manually Moving Album To IPad

Jun 12, 2012

I have seen that several people have experienced this, and one 'solution' is to delete the album from the iPad and then move it back from iTunes. However iTunes will not let me move the album again onto my iPad. Why not? (I am having to use manual moving rather than syncing because I have another iTunes on a PC, and the iPad seems to have attached itself to that.)

ITunes :: Album/Movie Cover Art Partially Missing?

May 3, 2012

Three times in the last week iTunes (10.6.1) is missing coverart for about 30 of 300 movies.  This is also happening with music artwork. The artwork can be individually repopulated using "Get Info" but this is really just a bandaid and I would like to know if anyone knows why this is happening and how to fix the root cause.

Applications :: Batch Tool For Missing Album Artwork For ITunes 8 On Leopard?

Jan 20, 2009

I did some searches in google as well as this forum and it looks like there are quite a few options out there for users interested having a program automatically grab missing album artwork from places like amazon if you are running iTunes on Windows.

Users have also reported that some of these tools are great at screwing up the existing album artwork in your iTunes library.

I am looking for a batch tool since I have missing artwork on 1000s of songs (note that this album artwork is not present in itunes store). Does anyone know of a good, reliable program or script that can import missing album artwork on iTunes 8 in OS X 10.5?

OS X :: MacBook Pro And System Preferences - ITunes Album Artwork Screen Saver Not Working

Jun 30, 2009

My dad just bought the $1999 model of the new MacBook Pro a few days ago. Previously he had a MacBook Pro with a 2.16 GHz Core 2 Duo processor in it. We used target disk mode to transfer all of the data over and everything went fine. The only problem now is in System Preferences when using the screen savers his favorite iTunes album artwork screen saver is not working saying there is no album artwork in iTunes which isn't true (I checked ). When in that preference it causes System Preferences to slow down to the point where I need to force quit it and it causes the application to crash.
