    Google is your friend.

    As long as you have the album art jpg, you can use itunes or many other free programs for the computer to embed to jpg into the mp3 file.

    On the computer, I use a program called Mp3Tag to manage my id3 tags. Some of these folks might have other solutions, but this has always worked for me with all of my devices. When I get an album, its first stop isn't Winamp, but Mp3Tag, I clean everything up, put an album cover in, clear the comments (LOL Mp3 id3 tag comment spam) and generally make sure everything is correct. I just did that because I'm partially OCD (an older co-worker of mine says it's because I'm part German, and Germans tend to be perfectionists) but I'm thankful for the extra effort now that I have a phone that renders the album art so nicely.

    Exactly what I do too lol. I use Tag Scanner, and go through each song and make sure the tags are perfect, down to each capital letter and spaces after dashes, and so on.

    And if I remember correctly, iTunes doesn't actually embed the album art in the mp3. I believe you would need something else to do that for you? There are numerous music apps in the market that will download the album art for the songs in your library.
