iPod Album Art

iPod Album Art

Here’s a great one for all you iPod users out there!

Who doesn’t love album art?! I mean, nothing says “cool” like the cover art of your favorite albums displayed right on your shiny iPod screen. And with the new iPod Touch interface (along with all the other iPod models), the role of album art has become even more important. Now, most iTunes users can just sign up for the iTunes store and automatically download album art for most of their music, but what about the non-iTunes users? Or, how about the users from countries where the iTunes store has yet to be launched? They are left in the hands of Google Images or going to Amazon.com to manually search and download their album art. And that, of course, is not always of optimum quality or in a standard size. What to do, what to do?

Well, luckily, a guy named Josh saw the struggles of all those poor souls who are constantly crawling around on the Web for album art and he made a little Web site dedicated to just that.

The look of the site is pleasing to the eye and the interface is pretty simple to follow. You go to the Web site and in the search field, just type in the name of the artist and the name of the album you’re looking for. Then bingo! What you want is right before your eyes!

This site usually gives you the album art in a couple of formats, so if you’re the adventurous type, it even tells you how to grab the album art from the iTunes store. Is that cool or what?! The album art on this site is of high quality and the resolution goes as high as 1425×1425. That’s certainly more than enough for your iPod!

So, there you have it. An easy and free way to get album art without ever giving your credit card number to Apple.
