Taming Your Music Collection: Album Artwork

Plan & Setup
     Once again, the most important thing is to plan the steps needed to complete our task.
  1. Register a new Last.fm account to gain access to their web service.
  2. Iterate the album directories in our organized structure to apply album artwork.
  3. Use the Last.fm web service to retrieve the album artwork.
  4. Embed the artwork into the mp3 file and save it.
     We'll use what we've already done in the previous article and incorporate our new features into the application. Let's get started by signing up for a Last.fm account.
  1. Head over to https://www.last.fm/join to sign up for an account.
  2. When your confirmation email arrives, click the link supplied to confirm your account.
  3. After you have logged in, navigate to http://www.last.fm/api/account to create your API account.
  4. This will give you an API key and a "secret" code. You will need to use your API key when making calls to the web service (Step 4: Get Artwork) so be sure to write it down.
     Now that you've got your API account set up, we can continue on!
