Adding JPEG artwork to tracks in iTunes 6

Hi there,

Does anyone know of a way to set a JPEG as artwork for a track in iTunes 6? I can do it if I convert the file to PICT format first, but then it consumes a lot more disk space.

This thread concluded that it couldn’t be done in iTunes 4, but we’ve moved on 2 versions now so I’m hoping things might have changed.



its a little off topic but wrote this one last week, im a bit pickie about the quality of artwork.

put this in your script menu and …

  1. simply select one track or a whole album.
  2. run the script
  3. select the image in google image search and go to the original page.
  4. drag the image from safari to the artwork section of itunes.

there will probably be a better way somewhere.

tell application "iTunes"
	set theAlbum to album of item 1 of selection as string
	set theartist to artist of item 1 of selection as string
end tell
	set thestring to theAlbum & "+" & theartist
	set thestring to do shell script "echo " & thestring & " | sed 's/ /+/g'"
end try

set theUrl to "" & thestring

tell application "Safari"
	open location theUrl
end tell
