Artie; Software for your iPod
frobba.com - life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
Artie's main purpose is two-fold: download appropriate album art covers for songs in your iTunes database and to create playlists based on these album art covers.
Artie uses Amazon.com to search for album art covers. If it finds a wrong one, it'll find the right one. If it can't find anything, it'll move on.
Artie can also resize the album art already assigned to songs in your database. Some songs might have HUGE album covers, making the file size of your songs larger, taking up precious hard drive space and/or iPod space. Artie resizes the images to 160x160 pixels, making them still viewable in iTunes and on your iPod without distortion, while cutting down file sizes.
If you hate album art, Artie can also remove the album art from the selected tracks."
