I want to download album art-work for my iTunes library without creating an iTunes store account.

There's an application called iArtwork that does just what I need but it is not free. Does anyone knows an alternative?

Note: I'm using Windows, so GimmeSomeTune won't work for me.

Why don't you want to create an iTunes account? They're free. –  Benjamin Dobson Sep 26 '09 at 13:35

Soundcrank sounds like it does that. It's a plugin for iTunes.

Try using MediaMonkey. When you download the album artwork, save the artwork to the file. That way, iTunes will pick it up.

For Mac users, I found Clutter to work really well, although that was a few years back.

I prefer doing things manually, and have found that the site Album Art Exchange to be the best site for great-looking (and expansive selection of) covers.

Songbird

Seems like a good candidate

No use Album Art Exchange blocked my IP + heck of a lot of work to unblock (India). Best way is -

  1. Download itunes & install
  2. Create an apple ID
  3. Choose the file you want to add album cover to
  4. Right Click -> Download cover or something like that
  5. Now open info
  6. Go to right most tab
  7. Copy the image
  8. Paste in Media monkey. That was for downloading with itunes

If you want your albums to appear in album view

  1. Save the album arts in the same folder as the file or itunes folder.
  2. Preferrably in JPG or Jpeg format.

Sorry did'nt read that you don't want to open an account. They make a test charge or Rs. 60 or $1 but don't return. They were not in my case but after some legal mails they did so. No guarantee they will do the same for you. But if you overlook the minor flaw its a great experience though. –  Soham_India Aug 22 '13 at 11:27
