Image information

Various (command line) ways to find the format of an image:

  • file FILENAME
  • identify FILENAME (requires imagemagick)
  • sips -g all FILENAME (OSX only?)

Better images

Getting better images from various sites:

iTunes

Replace 170x170 (or sometimes 100x100) in the image URL with 600x600 or 1200x1200. Be wary of upscaled images if using the 1200x1200 versions.

Amazon

Replace ._SL500_AA300_.jpg or ._SS400_.jpg at the end of the URL with just .jpg (sometimes the letters and numbers are slightly different but it always starts with a dot and an underscore). This will usually get rid of any white borders around the image too.

Discogs

Click the image to go to the page with the full images. Even when there isn't a "more images" link, the page will often have a larger front image.

Jamendo

Replace 1.100.jpg, 1.200.jpg, etc., at the end of the URL with 1.0.jpg

Magnatune

Replace cover_50.jpg, cover_160.jpg, etc., at the end of the URL with cover.jpg

Last.fm

Replace serve/300x300, serve/500, etc., with serve/_

Soundcloud

Replace t500x500.jpg (or whatever) with original.jpg at the end of the URL (you can just remove the question mark after .jpg and anything after it)
