Join the iTunes store
Join the Apple iTunes Store. Once you're a member, you can select all of your songs from List View in iTunes, right-click on the selection, and then select Get Album Artwork. If you want to add artwork for a full album in your playlist, go to Album View, right-click on the first song, and select Get Album Artwork.
Manually add artwork
Manually add artwork by going to Album Flow View from the View menu in iTunes or by clicking on the farthest right button of the three next to the "search" field.
Select all of the songs in which you'd like artwork. The bottom left area of the screen shows a box titled "Selected Item" over a white field that says, "Drag Album Artwork Here."
Find a picture of the album
Enter the name of the album and artist into a search engine and find images of the album artwork.
Copy and paste
Right-click on the album image and select Copy Image. Then go to iTunes and right-click on the Drag Artwork Here field. Select Paste, and the cover art will be pasted to the Drag Artwork Here field and into the blank field above the album title and artist in the Cover Flow.
Use artwork saved to your computer
Use images on your computer by highlighting the first song of the album, right-clicking on the highlighted area, and selecting Get Info. Then click on the Artwork tab, click Add, and find the artwork you want to use. Select the image, click OK, and the image will appear as the album artwork.
Sync your iPod
Copy your music from iTunes to your iPod -- or sync your iPod -- and all of your album artwork will be visible on your iPod screen.
