Step 2. Find your file on YouTube, Vimeo, SoundCloud & Copy URL

The beauty of it – you simply need to find the video or song you like. When you do so – you’re 90% ready to download music with album art!

Alternatively, you might also find the right video through our in-app browser. Simply type the desired song and select it. Bada-ts!

Choose all desired settings to download music with cover art

Locate the desired song without leaving the app.

Right after you will see the proper artwork show up in the downloading queue. Cool!

The correct artwork will appear in the downloading queue instantly!

Step 3. Select the destination & hit ‘Download’

‘You need to select the device you want to download the music on. The great news is – you can download songs with album art to any device, even iOS-powered gadgets.

In fact, any Apple device is 100% compatible. So, you can plug in your iPhone, iPod or iPad or simply download it to your computer.

Wait until the download is finished…

…and done!

SYC 2 will recognize it right away, and if the artwork is available on the web, it will be instantly synced with the downloaded song.

Once the converting is over, simply go to your iPhone or iPod and check if the artwork is in place.

yes! all album covers look great on an iPhone

Finally, I have the correct cover art on my iPhone.

Album covers are a modern form of art. Some of them are history and are famous all over the world – ‘’Abbey Road’’ by Beatles is a perfect example.

What if the album cover is NOT accurate?

To convert YouTube to MP3 with album art, SYC 2 uses a simple mechanism. The app recognizes the title of the song that you added – and looks it up on the web. If it finds a match, it pulls the correct artwork.

But if the title happens to be somewhat incorrect, for example, if it says ‘Frank Sinatra – Strangers in the Night (lyrics)’ instead of just ‘Frank Sinatra – Strangers in the Night’ – the artwork might be messed up.

Is there a solution? Oh yes. All you need to do is to edit the name of the song – after you added it to the downloading queue. Click on its title and edit it out using your computer’s keyboard. It’s super easy!

Next thing you know – SYC 2 will correct itself! This is how you can always download songs with proper album art on Mac or Windows.

YouTube vs Regular Album Art Downloaders

Prove me wrong, but most of the album art downloaders are outdated. They look sketchy and who wants to risk safety?

What’s more, the majority of those apps work on Windows. Therefore, it’s very difficult to find album art downloader for Mac.

It’s obvious that it’s much easier to download music already with cover art than save both things separately. Which is exactly what happens unless you use the workaround outlined above.

Bottom line

With SYC 2 MP3 download with album art has never been this easy.

Empty thumbnails look ugly and inconsistent. No wonder we want to see beautiful cover art instead. Especially, if there’s a stupid-simple way to download album cover to your device.

If you want to save music with a proper artwork on your computer or iPhone, you simply need to copy its link. Softorino YouTube Converter 2 does all the rest. Just choose the iOS device of your choice, iPods included, and download songs with album art.

It will certainly look incredibly fitting on your iPhone or computer. And this is probably the easiest way to download music with album cover automatically, no iTunes or any other side apps involved.
