Songs bought from the iTunes Music Store typically include an image of the album cover art or a photo of the artist. Unfortunately, you don’t get free artwork when you rip an audio CD — the discs aren’t manufactured with digital cover art stashed somewhere on an empty track. So, songs without artwork look something like this image.
You have the option of using your own image or artwork. iTunes supports the following graphic formats — JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, or Photoshop. (Most graphics on the Web are in JPEG or GIF format, so you don’t have to convert anything.)
How to Add Artwork to iTunes

You can either scan the image of your CD cover or you can do it the easy way. Search for the particular album or artist in images.google.com and select the one, which suits you most and save it to your desktop.
