GetArtwork tries to find an album cover from for any selected iTunes song. Multiple selections are fine but only the first will be searched for. If no matching entries are found, the script will ask whether to close the Safari window.

Note: Due to limitations in iTunes' AppleScript support of the browser, at least one song must be selected.

Suggested procedure:
1 place GetArtwork into "~/Library/iTunes/Scripts" - create the Scripts folder if necessary.
2 select all songs from a given album in iTunes
3 make sure, that artwork is displayed in iTunes
4 select "Get Artwork" from iTunes' Script menu.
5 see what happens
6 if all goes well and the cover displayed in the Safari window is the one you wanted, click 'Accept' and wait a few moments.

What's New:
No longer closes the Safari window containing the artwork
Makes iTunes the active application after finishing.

iTunes 4.0.1 or higher
QuickTime Player.
