Forum Question: Adding Album Artwork To iTunes

I’ve done this on previous versions, but not in 11.0.5. I’m importing older records into iTunes and have to add the artwork. I’ve found the artwork, but can’t seem to figure out how to paste into the program. Used to be, the small block on the bottom of the sidebar would show the album artwork, but not now. Was wondering if you know a way? Thanks Gary!

    You can still add album artwork to songs in iTunes 11, and the procedure is basically the same.
    At the top iTunes, while viewing your music library, choose Albums so you can view an entire album as a single item. Then select the album. Press Command+I and you’ll get an information window. Use the “Info” tab at the top of this window. Then you’ll see an Artwork box on the left side. Click on it to select it and you can paste into it.
    You can do the same when selecting a single song, but you get a separate Artwork tab in the information window. Either way works, but you probably want to use the first method so all the songs of that album get the artwork.

      My artwork box is on the right (bottom) side. I can click it and the borders highlight, but it doesn’t allow me to do anything else, no paste or copy, etc.

        Command+V should paste into it. Just tried it and it works. You should also be able to drag and drop a file or image into it.

          And I just noticed that if you double-click the artwork box, an Open File dialog box appears for you to select an image.

            Thanks, tried both ways and it works.
