Download High-Quality Cover Art from Apple Music

Nowadays, people tend to choose powerful streaming tools to enjoy songs. Examples include Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, and many more. In the past, the cover art was the first interaction a consumer had with an artist's work. When you first went to a record shop and discovered the work of an unknown or unfamiliar artist, whether the artwork caught your eye and impressed you determined whether you would give it a chance and buy it home.

Some well-designed cover arts are even cherished and collected by music lovers. So in the age of streaming, does the fact that a song cover has shrunk to a small square means that it is not important? Of course not! The artwork has always been an important space to grab people's attention and make sense of the content of the artist's song. This is where apple music users ask, so can I download the virtual Apple Music artwork in high quality as well? How do I save it? Can I modify or change the cover art of an Apple Music song? These are the things we will be explaining next.

Part 1: Download High-Quality Cover Art from Apple Music Web Player

As you know, you can view Artwork information in the song details of the iTunes or Apple Music app, but there is no download button, nor can you right-click to copy or drag and drop to the desktop to create a new file.

When you log in to the Apple Music web player via your browser and go directly to a song or album, you will notice that when you right-click on the cover, the "save image as" button is optional, but the saved file is shown as a .webp suffix instead of a normal image file. This format is still only viewable through a browser and cannot be opened through some of the computer's image viewers. But don't worry, we'll show you how to get real quality cover art with Apple Music's web player.

Step 1 First, open any browser on your computer and visit the official Apple Music website. Log in to your account details.

Step 2 Once you have logged in, open or search directly in the search box in the top left corner for the single or album you want to get cover art for.

Step 3 Open the album, then right-click on the current screen and select View page source from the menu options.
