iTSfv converts any non-JPG artwork before saving as Folder.jpg.

what's the file format iTunes uses when downloading the covers from iTunes? Is it always jpg?

QUOTE
To import artwork you alway s have the flexibility to specify the file pattern and file type in iTSfv Options.

what do you mean by that?

also, exporting the artwork to a separate folder doesn't work. It always switches back to the first option. The same is true for importing.

urlwolf,

That's understandable. If I were you I'd defintely try

http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=57392 - Artwork Downloader XUI which has gone some nice implementations including iTMS Artwork.

Yes the Explorer tab now supports specifying more locations to add new music files from. Manual 5.10 will have more detail information on this. smile.gif


Jojo,

iTMS always has JPG files. This can be backed up by the URLs iTSfv uses for Artwork.

What I meant was: you can specify file type and pattern using strings such as %Album% - %Artist%.jpg/png etc and iTSfv will look for them as the primary source of artwork.

Good catch with the remembering setting, thanks! The options has been surprisingly missed since 5.2!

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/itsfv/iTS...use_mirror=osdn

5.10.0.2 Resume validation from last checked album checkBox setting will now be remembered
5.10.0.1 Export/Import to/from folder choices were not saved in Options
5.10.0.0 Support exporting selected tracks to another directory specified

Hi Gang,

Cooking right now is iTSfv 5.11 which has the

5.11.0.0 Ability to replace existing Artwork with higher resolution (usually 1425x1425) iTunes Music Store artwork if found

So basically when you validate selected tracks hereafter, iTSfv will look for iTMS artwork and use that to export/embed in the selected tracks.

iTSfv will make the query once per Album, not once per track, effectively reducing bandwidth and hdd usage.

Something interesting came up while testing. I realized there is no limit to the resolution in iTMS artwork? What is the biggest Artwork you guys found? When I thought iTSfv was stuck for a while, it was downloading a 10.1 MiB file and after checking it out, it is indeed a valid artwork with 5569x5540 resolution!

http://wmwiki.com/mcored/research/itsfv/Ve...num%20Album.jpg

All the downloaded iTMS artwork are saved in

%AppData%\iTSfv\%AlbumArtist%\%Album% folders. I will make this user configurable in the final stages. Another change would be to Create a checkBox always import higher resolution artwork in Advanced > Tracks and extend the functionality to Validate Library.

Any feedback is welcome during this designing phase. smile.gif

check out this post: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....st&p=517693

Also, is it possible to search for album art based on ID3 tags? If so, how would I do that? In addition, I don't like adding Album names for my Singles (I just leave it blank). Therefore, iTunes can't find the album art for the songs, since it only searches for "Artist - Album". It would be nice if I could use the title of a song as the Album title to solve this problem.

thank you

Aha, so that explains why the huge size of the Artwork. I will have a look what I could do determining the file type, thanks.

Good idea about searching Album Art for CDS (CD Singles), I shall add that flexibility.

I really don't see the use of uploading/downloading a 5000x5000+ size artwork... 1425x1425 already looks huge to me. Maybe someone can explain ?

Jose, biggrin.gif

It looks nicer with higher resolution in Full Screen Cover Flow
It looks nicer with higher resolution in HTPC Screen

I am not sure why iTMS has 5000x5000 artwork. From 1170 albums I ran across only once that had this size artwork. Everything else were aroudn 1425x1425.

Talking in terms of iTSfv, the option is certainly user configurable. In Options > Advanced > Internet you can enable/disable this setting.

Sure McoreD, I know that... but no HTPC screen has 1425 lines.

Assuming one has a Full HD plasma display 1080p (1920x1080), one gets 1080 lines max., no more.
Assuming one has a Full HD computer display (1920x1200), one gets get 1200 lines max. in full screen mode. And even in full screen, Cover Flow covers don't occupy all screen.
And most of us still are in 720p (1280x720, 1366x768, etc.).

So, well, 900x900 or so I would understand, but 1425 or more, I really don't understand. Files become bigger, longer to open, and all this for what purpose ? blink.gif

Jose,

I agree. It might be going over the line but everybody is jumping to the high resolution artwork bandwagon so you can't blame me for having that option in iTSfv. biggrin.gif

Jojo,

Another good catch. This time Choices were fixed and saved (I thought this was the bug before) but not the actual patterns. I am sorry about this. Sometimes these go unnoticed among 100 other settings.

Here is a build hopefully this issue is fixed:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...ckage_id=243989

5.11.3.2 Export/Import to/from folder patterns were not saved in Options [Jojo]
5.11.3.1 Application could have crash while filling DiscCount if the track wasn't found in Albums Table

Basically what happens with Empty Album tag is that, iTSfv will look for Track Name instead of Album Name.

Example Log:

20070922T092835 Searching iTMS Artwork for Madonna - Hung Up (Radio Version)
20070922T092835 Start fetching: http://ax.phobos.apple.com.edgesuite.net/W...(Radio+Version)
20070922T092838 Fetched http://a1.phobos.apple.com/r10/Music/84/e9...zi.xieufiwb.jpg
20070922T092838 folderArtworkPath: H:\Users\Public\iTSfv\Madonna\Hung+Up+(Radio+Version)\iTMS.jpg
20070922T092838 trackArtworkPath: H:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\iTSfv\trackArtwork.jpg


HOWTO:
iTSfv > Options > Advanced > Internet > Download iTMS Artwork if available should be Checked
iTSfv > Options > Advanced > Validation > Include Tracks without Name, Artist and Album should be Checked


Now, provided that you have Artist tag and Name tag filled for CD Singles, iTSfv will look for iTMS artwork. Could you please check if this works? iTSfv > Logs > Debug... and see what the debug log file says.

Apart from CD Singles, other normal albums should get cover art too. I'd be very happy to hear some feedback on this.

ok and what do I do next? I just want the album art and not have it mess with my ID3 tags. Where do I have to click to start the process? This is so confusing.

Also, how do I get iTsfv to only handle selected tracks. I was seeing that as an option, but can't figure out how to do it. Finally, what does "Import Artwork from any single image file in album folder" do?

thank you smile.gif

Jojo,

To add a new file export pattern, lets say %AlbumArtist% - (%Year%) %Album%.jpg go to

iTSfv > Options > Validate > FileSystem
In Export Artwork to following folder as comboBox type %AlbumArtist% - (%Year%) %Album%.jpg
Press Apply (now the new pattern is added)
Choose %AlbumArtist% - (%Year%) %Album%.jpg
Press Apply (now the new pattern is active)

To get iTSfv to export Arwork without messing with ID3 tags,
Uncheck EVERYTHING ( these are Copy AlbumArtist to Artist, Import Artist to Track, Fill TrackCount, DiscNumber and DiscCount ) in iTSfv > Validate > Tracks tab.
In iTSfv > Validate > FileSystem have Export Artwork to Album folder checkBox checked

Please use 5.11.3.7 version which supports exporting artwork without needing to embed them in tracks, which is the top most here http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...ckage_id=243989

To handle Selected Tracks, after you have done the above, just press the Validate Selected Tracks in iTSv.

What does "Import Artwork from any single image file in album folder" do?
Jose's great suggestion:
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....st&p=515025

Please let me know how it goes.

I have realized the program would stop working iTMS Artwork is not found. The enthusiasm to release with new features asap brings the quality of the product down, even this is BETA. I am fixing it as we speak, to revert back to exporting whatever is embedded in the track.


Cheers,
McoreD

thank you very much.

Here are some more bugs:

validation settings are lost after restart (the regular program, not in the options)
export setting (in folder), won't save user defined location
album art without any album name, is saved as "Artist - %Album%"
"only validate selected tracks" only worked once. now it won't do anything

also, I don't get the program to download music from iTunes. It won't even connect to the internet. It will just export the existing album art.

Hi Jojo,

Thanks very much for the feedback.

album art without any album name, is saved as "Artist - %Album%"

Cheers and fixed, it willl revert to Track Name if Album Name is not found, if not at least Name is found then it will say Unknown Album -- hopefully we won't see tracks that ugly.

5.11.5.0 CheckBox text for Import/Export in iTSfv will now represent Import/Export settings in Options
5.11.4.2 Adding new file name patterns and using them will not anymore require pressing Apply button twice
5.11.4.1 Album art without any album name, were saved as "Artist - %Album%" [Jojo]
5.11.4.0 iTSv will not perform Export Artwork 2-pass anymore if Import Artwork checkBox is unchecked
5.11.3.7 Application crashed while exporting Artwork if iTMS artwork was not found

validation settings are lost after restart (the regular program, not in the options)

OK; I have been quite sure that every setting related to editing ID3 tags are saved and restored properly. Do you mean the checkBoxes in Checks tab? As they were merely checks, I haven't made it to save/restore. But I can.

export setting (in folder), won't save user defined location
Folder locations are saved and retrieved properly for both Import/Export custom folder locations. . I am not sure what I missed. huh.gif

"only validate selected tracks" only worked once. now it won't do anything

Could you please provide/paste the log file? You can access the log file via iTSfv : Menu > Logs > Debug...

Thanks

there is no entry, since it won't even start.

thank you

Thanks again Jojo!

OK; for Validate Selected Tracks not starting, I think I know - did you select only one track?
I didn't allow validating ONE track to prevent accidental mouse clicks, but I have it enabled now.

Jojo,

Please see if you could reproduce those errors with the latest build. smile.gif

The debug file will let you know if the artwork was found in iTMS database.

Thanks,

Do you ever sleep McoreD ? blink.gif

BTW, allowing validation of only ONE track is great, for instance if you want to get iTMS artwork for that great new song you've just downl... er, bought. laugh.gif

How do I download iTunes artwork? I've checked all the options you advised me to do and it still won't do it. It doesn't even want to connect to the internet...

Jojo, I think you've already asked that question, right ?

Have you tried simply using... (will I dare say it ?)... (suspense)... iTunes ? laugh.gif laugh.gif

lol Jose.

Jojo,

I tested with a track without embedded Artwork also. I am not sure what's going on!?

Would you be able to send me one of your mp3 that doesn't get iTMS artwork? My email address is mcored@ii.net

Version 5.11.6.2

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...ckage_id=243989

Version History:

5.11.6.2 If Folder artwork dimensions match the embedded artwork dimensions, iTSfv did not look for iTMS artwork
5.11.6.1 Artwork available as TIF in iTMS were not found; they will now be converted to JPG and used as iTMS Artwork source
5.11.6.0 iTSfv will now search for Artwork from all the available iTunes Music stores in the world
5.11.5.1 Did not export iTMS downloaded Artwork if there was no embedded artwork in the track
5.11.5.0 CheckBox text for Import/Export in iTSfv will now represent Import/Export settings in Options
5.11.4.2 Adding new file name patterns and using them will not anymore require pressing Apply button twice
5.11.4.1 Album art without any album name, were saved as "Artist - %Album%" [Jojo]
5.11.4.0 iTSv will not perform Export Artwork 2-pass anymore if Import Artwork checkBox is unchecked

The only way I can reproduce your log is by unchecking ALL checkBoxes, but you actually need at least "Export Artwork" checkBox checked in the main screen.



I will post more screenshots in the arvo.

Jose, could you also please try 5.11.6.2 of iTSfv for exporting iTMS artwork? Thanks.
