Export Artwork is an AppleScript Studio application for use with iTunes on Mac OS X. It's main function is to extract the Artwork from the selected track's ID3 tag and copy it to an image file in a chosen location.

Export Artwork is also a fully fledged Artwork manager as it can fetch album covers over the Internet and embed Artwork to the ID3 tag, making it a great tool to update your cover collection as your music library grows.

For those of you who have already filled your library's worth of mp3 / m4a (AAC) files with the Artwork, but want to remove it from the ID3 tag to keep the file size down, and still keep all those album covers, or if you're looking for a way to compile all your album covers for a database or gallery, here is a solution to export Artwork back into it's own file.
