As soon as CoverScout sees a gray gap in your Cover Flow, it begins an automatic search of the leading online music collections: Amazon, WalMart and Google Images. Within seconds, it offers you an array of cover art choices.

Spot missing cover art by flipping through your music collection with the Cover Flow feature.

“CoverScout is a blessing, by the way... It was so simple to complete my iTunes album artwork. Fire and forget!”
- Phil, UK
Quick Look for a better view
Click on the image and tap the space bar to see your covers in their full glory. A Quick Look window appears that allows you to see the cover full size.
Add artwork straight to the file
CoverScout automatically copies all your iTunes artwork currently stored in the iTunes covers folder to the ID3 tag of your music file.
“I like the fact that they're not solely an iTunes plugin, but standalone products that will work outside of the iTunes music folder.”
- Peter Hesen, Netherlands
Use independently of iTunes
iTunes saves your cover art in a library separately to the music file. When you move or archive your library, album covers can be lost. Instead, CoverScout automatically copies all the artwork to each music file.
Edit your covers with precision
Rotate and crop, straighten and scale
If your covers don't look right, flip and chop 'em to make 'em right. Straighten & scale to your preferred size and get your covers exactly as you want.
Fine-tune your colors
Adjust the brightness and contrast of your cover art with the sliders and RGB chart, or let CoverScout do the work for you, just like your favorite image editors.
White borders? No worries.
Some covers come with a white border. Select the cover, click edit then crop, and CoverScout will automatically find where your cover begins and ends.
Take a pic with iSight
Grab your album and take a snap with your iSight camera. Use the cover editor to crop, straighten and adjust the color of your image.
“The album art editor in CoverScout is awesome!”
