I've a library that i use for DJing.
In this case, a lot of my song are remix/mashup/...
When i made analysis, BeaTunes didn't find the cover of my songs because he try to find with the 'remix name' included.
Example : Artist : Madonna / Title : Vogue (12 inch Remix)
How can i do to find the cover based on "Madonna - Vogue" and not on "Madonna - Vogue (12 inch Remix)" ?
Many thanks for your help.

    If it's only a few cases, you could use the Get Info panel and right-click on the (missing) cover to get some options. If "Set cover art to..." stays empty (it may need a couple of seconds to populate), you might want to try "Search the web..." and them drag and drop whatever you find onto the placeholder cover.

    I know, but with this method, when you search on the web, the search was made on artist only.

    You find a lot of picture of Madonna, but not the cover for the song Vogue.

    And, i’ve +/- 3600 songs, where about 1/3 doesn’t have a cover… This may take a lot of days to complete the collection 

    Yep. Sounds like a problem.

    Example : Artist : Madonna / Title : Vogue (12 inch Remix)

    For the example you gave, what's the Album name? The title is usually ignored anyway...

    That aside, have you ever computed fingerprints?

    You might want to...

    • Analyze your tracks using the following settings:
      • Select only the "Take fingerprint" task
      • Leave the box "Submit fingerprint ..." unchecked

    And then run the artwork import again.
