Add artwork to songs and other items

Music and video you buy from the iTunes Store comes with its own artwork. You can add your own artwork to songs and other items in your library.

You can add many popular types of still image files, including JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, and Photoshop. You must convert WAV files to another format before you can add artwork to them.

Album artwork for the currently playing item appears to the left of the progress bar. To view album artwork at a larger size in a separate window, click the artwork.
