Program to automatically download album art?

My music directory looks like this:

E:\Music\ArtistName\AlbumTitle\

Pretty simple, each AlbumTitle folder has one album art pic in it, folder.jpg

Problem is, most I downloaded over time manually from the allmusic.com website, which means the majority are 200x200 resolution pics.

I'd like each to be around 500x500, if possible.


Suggestions?

That was the program I was going to mention.

I think the name of the program (IIRC) is Album Art Downloader, not Album Art Aggregator, which seems to be abandoned, from what I can find.

Album Art Downloader seems to be the best program for this out there right now, as it seems to hit all the sites that I would check for art. The only downside is that it needs .Net 3.51, which was a +50 Meg download for me. (That took a whole 30 seconds! What were they thinking!?! ) The forum for this is at Hydrogenaudio.

The zune software is capable of doing this remarkably well. I have a couple friends who bummed it off of me when I bought my zune to use it to sort their music.

anybody know how to filter particular characters from folders/searches when searching using album art downloader? Command line reference does not seem to be able to exclude only characters but only folders

for example, i have folders with (2m) or (3p) etc appended to the name to so i knew how many hours i taped vinyl with a particular cartridge

but this program doesn't like anything with folders named like this slightly different

yeah, this is looking cool, i thinks pictures resolution is by default, it is not going to change.

lately, i began to use a program called "Taghycardia" for automatic cover art downloads. it scans your folders getting images online when they are missing, and embeds them. all happens transparently requiring practically no interaction.
