What are some of the best sites you use to find album art? I upload to and get most of my images from the Album Art Exchange.

You can search the images I’ve posted by typing rwwear into the search window.
I also use Discogs and allcdcovers.

I suppose I should explain. I’ve been ripping my CD’s to a dedicated media computer using JRiver. I have around 800 albums so far in FLAC format. I like to use high quality images only. I also use the images for iTunes.

Typically good 500x500 pictures can be right-click saved from Amazon.

Be aware that the “zoom-able” images are not jpeg’s

If that isn’t good enough Search Google on the “Images” tab.
and include “album art” along with Artist and album title.

Typically there are 1000x1000 or larger images for the art.

Personally I find 500x500 to be good enough as these are actually
slightly larger on my 24" Monitor than the physical CD artwork.

Also I generally only bother with front cover art.

Amazon’s images just aren’t generally good enough when you have a dedicated computer media server connected to a large TV. I also use the album art as a screensaver. It’s a matter of taste.
I’ve posted a lot of images on Amazon myself but they compress them.

Amazon images ar e generally 500x500.

If you want better images than that you’ve gotta do a google search for images, but most google images are PNG files, not JPG’s.

I personally prefer JPG’s but I have the full pro-suite version of /Adobe Photoshop so converting images isn’t a big deal

Aside from album art exchange, I use allcdcovers dot com. Those are 2 of the good ones I’ve tried.
