    Just a warning to those that want to replace all their old music with iTunes Match files. I had my old library very organized and had every song with the proper artwork IMBEDDED in the mp3 files. Since I replaced all my files with new 256kbps AAC files they are now missing a lot of artwork. Apple doesn't imbed artwork (they link artwork). For some reason (I can't really tell you why) I prefer to have the artwork imbedded. Over the next few months I'll go through and imbed all the artwork. I've already done my A's so there's a start.

    What do you use to embed the artwork?

    I stared by just copy/paste into iTunes from Wikipedia & amazon. I have an old version of Tag&Rename but it works.

    If you're a Mac user like me, you'd want to use the widgetFoundry Amazon Album Art Widget:
    widgetFoundry

    Highlight the song(s) that are missing art, look up the song/album that's missing art, find what you're looking for, and tag it. Works 99% of the time.

    I also run the iTunes Advanced>Get Album Artwork Command a few times, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.
