If no matching entries are found, the script will ask whether to close the Safari window. Note: Due to limitations in iTunes' AppleScript support of the browser, at least one song must be selected. Suggested procedure: place GetArtwork into "~/Library/iTunes/Scripts" - create the Scripts folder if necessary. select all songs from a given album in iTunes make sure, that artwork is displayed in iTunes select "Get Artwork" from iTunes' Script menu. see what happens if all goes well and the cover displayed in the Safari window is the one you wanted, drag the image from Safari to the Artwork well in iTunes.
