AlbumArtDownloader is arguably one of the best free album cover art downloaders around. It effortlessly searches a large number of cover art sources with standalone scripts that are constantly updated. And it presents all the found art with previews, sizes, etc.

1. Download and install AlbumArtDownloader from SourceForge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/album-art/

2. In MP3TAG, click on Tools and select Options... (Ctrl-O shortcut)

3. In the Mp3tag Options window, select Tools on the left side, and click on the icon on the right with a yellow star to enter a new command:


4. In the Customize Tool window, enter the following values:
Name:
CODE
Covers - AlbumArt Downloader

Path--the default is shown. If you installed elsewhere, change accordingly:
CODE
C:\Program Files\AlbumArtDownloader\AlbumArt.exe

Parameter:
CODE
/ar "%artist%" /al "%album%" /p "%_folderpath%folder.jpg" /t f /mn 500 /mx 3000 /o a- /ac


Here's what the window looks like fully filled out:


5. Click OK to save and exit the Tools windows.

6. Now to download and automatically save the chosen artwork, simply right-click any track, select Tools, Covers - AlbumArt Downloader

7. In the Album Art Downloader window, simply click on the disc icon to save the selected file as "folder.jpg" to the directory of the track you right-clicked on. The Album Art Downloader window will close automatically.

Thank you very much for your valuable post. It works a charm.

Could you, please, post your settings for the Google Album Art search too?
