iTunes for Windows: Add artwork to songs and other items

Add artwork to songs and other items

Music and videos you buy from the iTunes Store or download from Apple Music come with artwork. You can also add your own artwork to any song or other item in your library.

You can add many 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.
