    So there are some songs and albums in my iTunes library that do not have artwork (for some strange reason *wink*) and I am currently downloading the JPEG image of the album artworks that I need, but I don't know how to install them in the right place to have them show up in Cover Flow in iTunes.

    Is this possible? If so I really need a tutorial! I'd love to search through iTunes in Cover Flow and I'm getting an iPod Touch soon so that'll make it more interesting too instead of blank album artworks.

    Can anyone help?! Thanks!

    Okay, here's how to do it on Windows, I imagine it's much the same on OS X.

    1. Open iTunes.
    2. Open web browser.
    3. Go to Discogs.
    4. Search artist/album; find the specific one you want and click on the album.
    5. Click "More Images" or just the album artwork.
    6. Right click the new image that appears (it is much higher quality) and hit save.
    7. Save to a specific spot.
    8. Go to iTunes, select the song, right click and hit "Get Info".
    9. In the "Artwork" tab, hit "Add".
    10. Browse through your hard drive till you find the picture you just downloaded.
    11. Hit "Open" and the picture is now attached to the song.
    12. Hit "Okay" in iTunes.
    To do this for multiple items, simply select multiple items and right click "Get Info". The only difference is that instead of browsing for a picture, you have to use copy and paste.
    Hope this helped.
