Preparing your iTunes library!

Not everyone has an iTunes library made of songs exclusively bought on the iTunes store. What is not cool is that the "Get Album Artwork" feature in iTunes 7 doesn't always work perfectly. The bottom line is, a lot of people have missing artwork when using CoverFlow in iTunes 7. It's not as elegant, but it's still not that big of an issue in iTunes, but with the iPhone, you'll want CoverFlow to work flawlessly. Getting the missing artworks manually is really long. There is a very nice application that will check the song you highlighted in your iTunes library and find the right artwork on Amazon. If you have enough information, such as Album, Song and Artist, the widget should give you the right artwork. In the case that some information is missing, it will let you browse through a list of artworks from that artist and you can choose. Once you have the right one, you just have to hit "Set as Album Art in iTunes" and the widget will take care of the rest. The widget will also let you choose if you want it to search on Amazon.com or in other countries. The widget is called Amazon Album Art and is available for download here from Apple.com.
