Find large format album artwork at AlbumArt.og

AlbumArt.org is a site that provides searchable CD and DVD art in large format.

I’ve always used Amazon to download album art, which doesn’t provide large size images, and is on occasion unable to deliver artwork for some titles.

My second resource is typically Google image search, which is unpredictable.

This is why I was very pleased to discover AlbumArt.org. It allows you to search for either CD or DVD artwork and instantly produces (mostly) large format results.

It also contains album art from international and/or rare realeses.

A search for “Radiohead” produced a staggering 468 results, which certainly says something about the breadth of this resource. And as the folks over at the CD Design and Album Cover Art blog indicate, in many cases the size of the images is larger than that provided by the album artwork resources in Itunes.

    Nice report! I hate bad looking album art. I would prefer to use iTunes for the coverflow feature, but I do not want to create an iTunes account to download them, which iTunes tells me I must do to download coverart.

    I am sure there is a app that will allow me to do that, I should look for it sometime.

    Or perhaps it will appear here…

    Rob. Songbird is in beta at the moment and an add-on provides itunes like cover flow, sorry but I forget what it is called. But look at http://www.songbirdnest.com/ and you should be able to find it.

    AlbumArt.org seems to work better if you search for the name of a band rather than a specific album. There is also http://www.allcdcovers.com/

    Well, when reading your review I thought: yeah well, everyone knows radiohead. But like always I can’t find the album art of some obscure old cd by some obscure underground singer songwriter.
    But guess what.. in a lot of cases it did! It even found some artists only known in Holland and singing in Dutch…

    The other thing I noticed, one of the sources (but not the only one) they get their albumart from, is Amazon….
