Problems downloading / saving front and back covers

Good Morning!

For an organized music lover, owning the front and back covers of an album is almost a must, especially when buying digital albums, which in principle do not provide the front and back covers.

One of the reasons that makes me come to the All Music site repeatedly is to look for these covers. Unfortunately, I have not been able to save the images after opening them in the browser. I don't know if it's a purposeful block or if it's a site setup error.

As it becomes laborious to try to make a "print screen" of the images, besides that they lose quality, I would appreciate that you corrected the problem or explained to me why you do not want to do it.

 Sincerely,

José Santos

Sorry to say we had to put this method of disallowing right-clicking to save covers in order to comply with the rights holders of the images on the site.

It is a real drag to have to remove one of the functions that we know users enjoy, but the decision was out of our hands.

I sorry to say this is the entire reason I joined and paid for the subscription to AllMusic. I pay you for the ability to download those covers. I have an enormous library that I've ripped from my LPs over the years. iTunes does not always work, so I've relied on getting my covers from your site. my 8.5x14 scanner doesn't do well with an LP cover! 

I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS DECISION! Not to mention that the functionality just STOPPED. No warning, no explanation... nothing. It just stopped working.

My subscription will not be renewed.

Why can I no longer download an album cover.
