Perfect AUTOMATIC Artwork Downloader

Hello everybody,

I'm sorry for opening another thread but I am close to a nervous breakdown trying to find a fully automatic artwork downloader.
I tried 1000 tools that should be good and "automatic" but they are not (the way I understand automatic).

My wishlist:
• Download artwork for all mp3 files FULL automatic without user
(No texting in searchbars)
• Write artwork into mp3 file (no artwork folders)
• Skip files with existing artwork or ask before overwriting
• Pictures as big as possible (minimum 500x500 pixel)
• No white background to fill up space of not fitting pictures
Nice to have:
• Drag and drop for additional manual edits
• for free
• use discogs.com (seem to have very good pictures)

Yes, I know I am picky. BUT: Taggin functions are not important to me, I only care for the artwork.


I already installed/ checked out the following:

mp3 cover:
- puts white frames/ backgrounds to most pictures

Bliss:
- wants to install java (my computer guy told me not to do)

Album Art Aggregator
- Latest update 5 years ago
- Website seems to be down

Tune up
- Addon for windows media player

mp3tag/ godfather/ foobar/ album art downloader/ tag scanner/ media monkey/
- All more or less manual

Correct me if I tell something wrong.

Hope there is a tool for me somewhere outhere ...

thanks a lot mike

If you want the correct artwork, then a fully automatic download and embed app would probably disappoint you. Even with correct artist, title and album tags, the semi-automatic artwork search apps often find the wrong image.

Furthermore, the Winamp media library is built on metadata. If you don't have at least the basic tags (correct in content and structure) in your songs, the library will not be of much use for you.

My basic tags are mostly correct. The full automatic tool I was using (mp3cover) put 80-90% correct artwork to my songs which is really amazing.

The only problem with mp3cover is that most pictures have an ugly white frame when they are not exactly quadratic. Therefore I'm looking for an full automatic tool that does not "whiteframe" my artwork. :-)
