Hi,

If I get itunes 7.0 to download the album art for my music via either the Advanced... Get Album Art menu option or right-clicking Get Album Artwork, does anything happen to my original music files, ie does the alum art pic get embedded into the music file (Apple Lossless, if that makes any difference) or anything like that? If so, I don't hink I'll do it - I'd rather keep my music files as they are.

I've tried it with a couple of albums, then checked the modified dates and they don't seem to have changed, so I'm hoping nothing is altered. But I could be missing something, I guess.

If anyone has any advice or help that they would be prepared to offer me, I would be most grateful.

Many thanks in advance,

Matthew

Downloaded artwork is actually not embedded in each MP3 file, there is a file that is stored in the album folder that stores the artwork. This means if you send the music files to anyone else, the album artwork will not be included.
