    Ever since I got high speed internet a few months ago, I've gone nuts downloading songs thru iTunes. I've probably got a couple dozen CD's already.

    Just recently I figured out how to print a song list as a CD jewel case insert, but my question is this...is there any way I can print the "album art" so I can have a cover insert for the CD case?

    I've looked in the help files associated with the iTunes program, but that wasn't any help at all. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance!!

    Adam :type: :cool:

    If nothing else you might try putting your cursor over the graphic, right click and choose to save image, then open it and size it in a grapic program and print it.

    I've tried doing that, but I keep getting an error message that says, words to the effect, 'error getting the clipboard data.' :(

    On that same "Print" menu, there are a number of printing options you can select. If you've downloaded the music from iTunes, selecting "Mosaic" for the theme should give you the cover art.

    Mosaic will print all of the art from the songs represented on the playlist.

    Also, note that if you want just the one album, the artwork is low res.
    Googleing the album may get you a better picture.
    Isn't iTunes great though?
    I started using it in the first week, back when it was Mac only :)

    now they do shows too and I have the second season of Lost downloaded and I may go for some others at some point. :)

    Glad to help.

    One day you will be one of us... running Mac OS X on a shiny new Macintosh.

    Hey, those dual core Mac minis are down to $599.

    Apple is growing like crazy as of late. I just hope they don't grow TOO fast!

    When downloading a new version of iTunes (in this case version 7), I am assuming that nothing is lost from my current version? All content "transfers over," so to speak?

    Nothing is lost and many things are gained. This evening I told iTunes to download cover art for songs from 1135 different albums my wife and own. It took about 40 minutes of background work, but it did a nice job.

    Okay, I think I messed up somewhere, and I'm hoping you all can help.

    I downloaded the latest version of iTunes, and all was going smoothly until I somehow selected my entire music library and deleted it from the playlists.

    It's still on my hard drive, but I don't know how to get it all back on to iTunes, especially my "purchased" music.

    HELP!!

    Try going to google images and doing a search for the album cover.

    Sometimes when a page does not have the right click feature, one can go to File... Save As... and name the page.

    Then the art on the page can be found in a folder in a folder on one's pc.

    Uummmmmmm, nevermind. I think I got it figured out. However, in the event I can't get it all transfered back, I may be crying out for help again. So let's just all :praying: that all goes well.
