Oh yes, please start there . Truthfully, that would be all I'd ever need. The "Get Albumart" command in Winamp throws a jpeg into your MP3's folder.

Though, I have noticed that if you had an older albumart file in addition to the one Winamp downloaded for you, Winamp will know to use the one it fetched. I don't know if that's a timestamp thing or what, but maybe it keeps a database of chosen albumart somewhere.

If I were you, I'd ask other developers how they get albumart, because they also get the right one. For example, the classicpro widget Now Playing displays a large version of the albumart in its own tab.
