The Branched discussion for this is locked...
But one other thing I did not see mentioned here is some us the artwork for some us is MULTIPLE PAGES...with CD jacket Inserts Disc Scans or Bonus artwork... but itunes only display the first page of artwork of the song playing....To read The artwork You now have to get info and copy it to an external image viewer to zoom in to read anything that is on page 2+ of artwork for any given song.
I too had the same problem - missing artwork or should I say no artwork on any of my CD's. Eventually and quite by accident I discovered a partial solution. Go to File, Library, Get Artwork. That brought artwork to some but not all of my albums. Dunno about the rest though. HAven't solved that one yet.
As per Saiajin said.
- cmd+click (on Macs) on the image to the LEFT in the playback control bar at the top-middle when playing the track concerned, to get a single full-screen image of that track.
!! BUT TWO HUGE NEGATIVES !!
(1) This only shows you the FIRST image of a multi-image booklet!
(2) It only shows upto "fit to screen" size and NOT "show fullsize", when you cmd+click the opened image.
— so if you're on a small display, you cannot see the image detail any bigger within iTunes. Why??
Hope this helps those wondering at least how this currently worls and it's (high) limiations.
Unf-ing believably bad design! When all they had to do was incorporate these two extra things with a few extra lines of code!
Really makes me angry with Apple and their entirely selfish attitude to the great many users who have spent the last decade incorporating multiple high-res images PER TRACK &/or PER ALBUM.
I swear, complete blood-y idiots design this stuff!
