Default Album Art: Now In Glorious High-Res

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://zunerama.com/forum/index.php?topic=6474.0' target='_blank'>http://zunerama.com/forum/index.php?topic=6474.0</a><br /><br /></div>As Bill Wittress (Zuneguy) <a href="http://www.zuneguy.com/2006/12/questions-revisited.html" target="_blank">promised</a>, it seems our album art is finally receiving an upgrade. Several Zunerama forum members have noticed that once-pixilated and fuzzy have been replaced with sharp, high-resolution album art scans. Poster MrJoe has also <a target="_blank" href="http://zunerama.com/forum/index.php?topic=6474.msg55794#msg55794">noticed</a> that the &quot;find album info&quot; dialog has been updated and the &quot;find info for all albums&quot; command actually works correctly for once.<br /><br />One weird thing I noticed about the new dialog is that if I click on the album art during the update, I'm taken to <a target="_blank" href="http://shopformusic.microsoft.com/">http://shopformusic.microsoft.com/</a>, which seems pretty inconsistent with the Zune branding. I can only hope they fix/update this by the time the new software is released. <br /><br />The albums appear to be getting their updates artist by artist, likely in time for the launch of Zune2.<br /><br />EDIT: Clarified &quot;update&quot;.

You can also use the Zune Marketplace search to find good quality album art, 200x200 and 240x240 in many cases.

You need to search for albums to get album art:

EDIT: in the meantime I noticed we are not talking for 240x240 but 800x800 album art! Excellent.

I'm a little confused. To quote part of your post:
"One weird thing I noticed about the update though"
What update are you referring to?

Kostas, I'm a huge fan of your tool, and I can only hope the Marketplace update doesn't break it. In the meantime, would you care to update it to give us the full 800x800? That'd be awesome.

Apologies. I was referring to the "find album info" update. Let me clarify that now.

I don't think the high-res album art is available like the low-res, they've embedded it in the track, but I'll search for them anyway
