What is CoverHunter?

CoverHunter is a simple application made to download cover images for your digital music(mp3, ogg, flac, ...) albums. After downloading the covers, they can be saved in a way that any application following the desktop entry specification from freedesktop.org can make use of it.


  • Scan all directories inside a given one and guess the Album and Artist for the album represented by every directory.
  • Download covers for all found albums with one mouse click, and then let you select the correct one.
  • Save the cover inside the album's directory, to be used by applications like konqueror, xmms coverviewer, wmalbum and many others.
  • Drop any image from other applications into it and save this image as the album cover.
  • CoverHunter is released under the GNU GPL.
