When you’re importing old CDs or ripping old vinyl to your new digital library for DJing, you often want to have the associated release artwork that you remember for your tracks associated with each file; this can be a great help in making the transition from physical to digital music.

Even if you’re just adding new digital files, doing this can still be advantageous: It makes your collection more “human”, allowing you to browse through your music visually as well as by reading titles and so on.

Doing it is a two step process. First you need to find the artwork, then you need to add it. So whether you’re using iTunes or your DJ software, in this video, I show you how.
