by Shivaranjan on July 8, 2007


In this post we shall discuss how we can add any picture as an album art for the songs that you have in your iPod or iTunes library. The main purpose of this post is that we own lot of songs to which we would want to add our favourite picture as album art instead of the original album art that came with the song. You would also be having songs that don’t have album art so you can now add album art to these using iTunes.
