Export Artwork 2.7

Export Artwork is a shareware AppleScript Studio application for use with iTunes on Mac OSX. 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.

For those of you who have already filled your library's worth of mp3's 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. Export Artwork is also a great tool to update your cover collection as your music library grows, as it can fetch album covers over the Internet and embed Artwork to the ID3 tag.

- Added option to 'Process in manual mode'; when fetching images, the user can accept or reject the downloaded temp album cover based on the image preview.
- Added French localization (many thanks to Jacques Bernard for the translation). Please note: users updating from a previous English only version and wishing to use the new French localization will need to 'Reset' the application to it's default settings by clicking the 'Réinitialiser' button, because some interface text options are read from the preferences .plist file and will likely be in English. This step is only necessary at the very first launch.
- Modified interface (wider window) to accommodate new and future localizations.
- Modified progress panel to show bigger image preview and live resizing.
- Added new custom icons for dialogs.
- Changed some keyboard shortcuts (including new ones for new option).
- Temp files are now created in the user's /Library/Application Support/Export Artwork/ to store the fetched images prior to processing, and then moved to the appropriate location; this should result in less disk activity when storing album cover images on a different volume.
- Fixed a bug where the 'Name in format' option read from the user's default setting was not set properly in the UI.
- Added Guide in pdf format (in English only for now).
- Shortened name of the 'Launch Export Artwork' iTunes script to 'Export Artwork', once again to accommodate localization.
