Get Album Art in iTunes

Are you plagued with gray music-note icons mixed in with regular album art on your iPad’s screen? Do you long for a fully arted album collection? While songs purchased from the iTunes Store include album-cover artwork, tracks you rip from your own CDs don’t. But you have options.

Automatically Add Art

You can ask iTunes to head to the Internet and find as many album covers as it can. You need a (free) iTunes Store account to make this work, so if you haven’t signed up yet, flip back to Set Up an iTunes/App Store Account. To make iTunes fetch covers, choose Advanced→Get Album Artwork.

Since Apple has to root around in your library to figure out what covers you need, you get an alert box warning you that the company will be getting (and then dumping) personal information from you. Click OK and let iTunes get to work—which may take a while. When iTunes finishes, you should have a healthy dose of album art filling up the iTunes window.
