I always like to have a well-tagged and organized music collection complete with cover art. Some of my MP3s don’t have cover arts included in their ID3s, and it’s a pain searching for cover arts and adding them to the songs. Google Image Search is good, but there are better and efficient tools to do the same job of searching and fetching CD Album Cover Arts.
What follows is a list of some CD Album Cover Art search engines and tools that I’ve been using over the past few months. I’d really appreciate if you know of any other cover art searching tools â€“ please leave a comment if you have something to say.
All CD Covers
All CD Covers is a site that is completely community driven â€“ meaning that users visit the site, upload the cover art they’ve got, others vote on it and the end result is that you get the best, high quality cover art pictures for your music.
High quality, they say. And that’s for real. Go for the site and you’ll find simply brilliant high resolution cover art for your music albums. The statistics on the homepage speak for themselves.
As a user, you can win prizes by uploading cover art! Hit Ctrl + D as soon as you land on the site â€“ it must be in your bookmarks.
Sloth Radio CD/DVD Album Cover Art Search
Sloth Radio Search – Simple, clean and neat interface. Type in the name of the artist and the album and you get cover arts in multiple sizes â€“ just scroll down the page to have a look at all of them.
Right click and save the artwork to your computer. Just what you need. Nitpicking, I found this site a bit slow â€“ but it’s worth bearing considering the accuracy of search results.
CDCovers.CC Album Art Search
Proclaiming itself as a site with the world’s largest cover art archive, CDCovers.CC is a site to find more than just cover arts. Type in a name and you get related torrents, trailer, subtitles, and more.
The interface is intuitive, as you can see from the screenshot above. It definitely looks like a huge archive â€“ I got plenty of search results.
Bonus – Sleevage
Sleevage is a site worth including here â€“ everyday, there’s some new and interesting cover art that they feature on their blog. Quite a cool read. Go to Sleevage for plenty of amusing cover art images.
Leave your comments if you’ve got any. Much appreciated.
