How to access freedb images when not using EAC
Have been getting cover art from freedb which is activated when inserting new CDs using EAC.  Would like to be able to access more than one image per CD to add back cover, CD image, etc.  Is there a way either through EAC or by other means to get to the images on freedb?  Have poked around freedb but never find images.

If there are images in freeDB, that's news to me!  I dunno...  I use a scanner.  (There are places where you can download the artwork, but there is not one site with a a complete database of images and it can take some searching.)

P.S.
You can try Album Art Downloader XUI[/u][/b], which searches several locations automatically.

I am assuming the images come from freedb.  When I load a new CD, the data is populated from freedb then a cover art loader pops up and I can search for images.  The problem is that I can only pick one image to download.

While EAC may be giving you the impression that images come from freedb, images don't come from freedb since freedb does not offer, accept or maintain album art in any way, shape of form.

Other topics I have found say that Cover Art Downloader is the program used.  Any ideas where that program finds the cover art?

if you run tcpview, you can see the server addresses that any applications connect to.
