Tutorial for using Fetch Art

Ok many of you have asked for a tutorial since Fetch Art doesn't work like a standard Mac OS app (this is because it runs as an iTunes Script.) Let me know what you think.


YouTube video (lower resolution but more compatible and quicker to load)




Hi resolution QuickTime movie (might not work in all web browsers)

I am getting a script error that locks fetch art, can't quite at all. Can't restart the computer, I have to turn it off by holding the "on" switch. I get this either when the program is getting info from a search or loading the art to iTunes.... what to do?

I got the applescript error, removed fetch art with appdelete and am left with an icon in my menubar I can't remove. I've also lost those arrows in itunes that link individual tracks to the itunes store. I suspect fetch art is the culprit as they disappeared at the same time.

@ Guy

To uninstall FetchArt, just follow the information here: http://fetchartblog.blogspot.com/2007/05/fetch-art-uninstallation-instructions.html

You probably missed the last step, removing the script folder.

As for missing links in iTunes, FetchArt is a simple script. It doesn't modify iTunes at all, and cannot have removed the arrows linking to the music store.

@ everyone else. Blogger.com doesn't always notify me of comments. I'm surprised to see so many here that I didn't even know were made. The AppleScript errors you are seeing are unusual, however, I am willing to work with you to try and resolve them. Please email me at aric@aric.org for support.

cheers, it was where you said. don't know why appdelete didnt spot it. sorry I was quick to accuse regarding the arrows, must have been a coincidence it occurred at the same time. have to keep on looking for a solution to that one. not that i ever used the arrows.

Thanks for Fetch Art! really nice app! I found most of the Arts, some of them where not correct, though. When I tried to uninstall it, the script remains in iTunes. I checked the uninstallation instructions posted elsewhere. I removed the application and looked for the scripts folder in Library>iTunes, but there´s no a Script folder in there. Still, the Fetch Art script keeps appearing in iTunes. Am I missing anything?? I need some help, please!

Did you look in both libraries? It was under the one in macintosh HD in mine not the library under my name. Hope that helps.
