I've been using Album Art Downloader [AAD] for a now, with the aim of making a very tidy and attractive music collection. So far, so good; I have good quality album art for everything, made a custom layout in foobar2000 and control it with Android tablet and phone, choose renderers to move from the lounge to the computer room, run Winamp visuals etc and all that was a lot of fun smile.gif

Now I'm taking it far too seriously, and it's stopped being fun. I'd like to add some more artwork, specifically images of the artists for each album. There's 800+ albums, but only 170 artists here, a medium / average size I guess. [AAD] has done its job perfectly, but doesn't handle artists' images, and I can't find an equivalent for those artist images. Even not being fussy, having the same image for all albums by an artist regardless of timeframe, it's still daunting to just google up images one by one. Require a bit of tuning too, whatever happens, I saw some footage of the Stones from 1968 recently, they were actually young once upon a time smile.gif So, completely automatic image gathering might be amusing, but it'd be a start.

I realise it's a FAR more complicated issue than having artwork that's keyed to a unique CD ID, and I'm just tossing the idea out, but I was wondering if anyone else has become as obsess^H^H^H^H devoted to their music collection and has seen any tools to make obtaining artist artwork a bit easier ?

The best I've found is the Thumbs script from marc2003: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....st&p=810925
