What about the iTunes build-in feature for finding and applying missing iTunes artwork? This feature might be far from what you would expect, as it often doesn’t find all of your missing iTunes album art. On the other hand, the manual way of adding artwork using iTunes is slow and inefficient.

Did you know that iTunes doesn’t add artwork to your songs, but simply stores the album artwork in a folder on your PC? Using the above mentioned software this will change and album artwork will be tagged directly in your songs.
