How to Add Cover Art to iTunes

iTunes displays the cover art for your albums, videos, movies, podcasts, audio books, and TV shows in the Cover Flow browser. Color-display iPods, iPod touch, Apple TV, and the iPhone also display the cover art. Cover art is free, too.

Items that you buy from the iTunes Store typically include an image of the album, book, or box cover art or a photo of the artist that serves as cover art. You can see the artwork in the lower-left corner of the iTunes window by clicking the Show/Hide Artwork button, as shown in the following figure. The artwork changes for each item or album that you select and play.

Items that you buy from the iTunes Store typically include an image of the album, book, or box cover art or a photo of the artist that serves as cover art. You can see the artwork in the lower-left corner of the iTunes window by clicking the Show/Hide Artwork button, as shown here. The artwork changes for each item or album that you select and play.

To add artwork to one or more items, select it (or them) in your iTunes library and do one of the following:

  • Drag the artwork’s image file from a Desktop folder into the artwork viewing area (the lower-left corner of the iTunes window). To add artwork for an entire album (rather than just individual songs) or season of TV shows, first select the album or season in Browse view or select all the items in List view. Then drag the image file into the artwork viewing area.

  • Add artwork to a single item through the information window. Choose File→Get Info and then click the Artwork tab in the Get Info dialog box. Click the Add button, browse your hard drive or network for the image file, select the file, and then click OK.

  • Add artwork for multiple items in the Multiple Item Information dialog box. Choose File→Get Info after selecting the items, enable the Artwork field (select its check box), and then drag a graphics file for the cover art from a Desktop folder to the Artwork well. Click Yes to the warning message to change the artwork.
