Cannot see multiple cover artwork since I upgraded to iTunes 10.5.1. I used to be able to see more then one art cover for a song. Now there's no arrow button in the artwork box to scroll through other covers, even though the multiple cover art is in the info box of the song Track.

    Additionally, right-clicking in the album art window (to Copy or Paste) no longer works in 10.5.1.  Also, when you select a song and drag an image in, it appears for a second then disappears.  You have to select some other song, then go back to the song you started with and the art will appear correctly. 

     

    10.5.1 appears to have screwed up artwork big time.

    I am having the same problem:unable to cycle thru the art work in iTunes 10.5.1. The artwork is still embedded when you right-click but no arrow button in the artwork preview box. Same problem on iMac with Snow Leopard and Mac Mini with Lion OS. Please fix!!!!

    I have a smart playlist set up for "artwork is false" and "media is music" and each time i look there are more songs being sent to that playlist which means iTunes 10.5.1 is not recognizing the artwork originally added to the file either from ripping CD or from adding from an outside website like Amazon music. If only one song from an album is listed, I go to the album and look for the art in the other songs to copy and paste and then don't see the artwork for any of the songs in that album So frustrating. My guess is iTunes position is if you didn't buy it from them, too bad so sad. I hope that is not the case and it is a bug they will address.

    Same issue when you select a song and drag an image in, it appears for a second then disappears. Annoying, and not the way it used to work on previous versions.

    10.6 did not fix the issue either.

    iTunes 10.6 did not restore the scroll arrows in the art work box either. The scroll arrows appear briefly when you

     

    add additional art work. I wish Apple would say whether or not they plan to restore this feature. I have invested a l

     

    lot of time and effort in adding cover art and liner notes to my iTunes library and I am certainly not the only

     

    one who has. I don't understand the lack of a fix or the silence about the loss of this feature.  Anyone out there

     

    have any thoughs about this?

    I am quite upset with Apple over this one.

     

    I've been using multiple album art for jazz albums to show the backs of albums so as to see the personnel playing.  Having the ability to scan throught art with the right and left arrows is a very valuable thing...now gone!

     

    Why have they taken that function away?  The amount of code to do it is trivial and was already written.

     

    iTunes still lets you store more than one piece of art into a music file, but doesn't allow for the viewing of that art. 

     

    Hu???

    I agree. I too took advantsge of the multiple art angle so as to embed back cover art, etc. Please return to us a way to see it, preferably one that allows you to zoom in on parts of it.

    The arrows show up while the additional artwork is being copied, but then disappear.

    Problem solved! In iTunes 11, they took away the preview image altogether. Gone. Finito. RIP.
