Where do you get your album art?

Lots of times, albums are uploaded with no scans at all or maybe just really tiny ones. Where do you go usually to get your covers? What sites have the best scans, widest selection, or most complete album art?
For me, my first stop would be www.allcdcovers.com. They have a pretty huge selection of CDs as well as DVDs now. While some of the scans are not really high quality, the sizes generally range around 1200 to 1400 pixels. And they include a lot of the album art like back cover, inlays, and CD itself. Most scans will be downloaded as jpgs.
The downside here is that after about 8 or 10 downloads, you get hit with an anti-robot "please enter the below code to continue" prompt and you end up downloading a huge bmp file instead of a nice jpg. After this download, you're back to pulling down jpgs again for a while. So it's really just a bump in the road if you're going after all the art for somebody's discography, for example. Still worth the trip.

Cover Art?
There is an option in my favorite J.River Media Center to grab cover art from net based on the criteria of id3 tags and embed it to the mp3 files.
But for high reso arts: simply search google images selecting 'large' (from left).

LOL. I just simply buy songs/albums/EP's from iTunes. iTunes includes a album art in file when you buy the song. ;P

I've never looked at "Google Images" .. don't even know how to get to that spot. I usually go to Amazon.com music section and copy theirs. Or occasionally to the artist's website, or even to a "Coverart" website sometimes.
