Does anyone happen to know of a reliable source for Hi-Res [500x500+] album art? I've had hit and miss luck with tools that use amazon and google. Anything else to try?

I believe that Album Art Downloader has been mentioned in various places here before. It searches most sources for album art and displays them all, allowing you to sort by size and more. Generally, it works well for me.

Another place that has good 500x500 is buy.com. You have to mess with the site a little bit to be able to save the larger art though. Example. On this page you would click enlarge image, but when you try to right click on the image to save, it shrinks back down. To save it, right click on the enlarge image link, select Copy Link Location, then paste it into your address bar.

The link looks like this when pasted
CODE
java script:largeIM2('http://ak.buy.com/db_assets/large_images/387/60613387.jpg');hide('ppForm')


Then just simply cut all of the javascript off, leaving only the link
CODE
http://ak.buy.com/db_assets/large_images/387/60613387.jpg

and there's your 500x500 album art. I find that buy.com seems to be a little higher quality than amazon.
