^^^ Thanks for the info Reprobate! I haven't had a chance to look into this option, but will do so soon. It is more steps than ideal, but seems like it would work and much better than trying to recreate all those artworks (I have a bunch of live stuff that itunes can never find).
Another question specific to itunes. Will the program even read the images if they are saved as a separate files, or must the information be embedded into the mp3 files themselves?
PS I should add that I have the capability of working on either a pc or a mac for conversion purposes, but will be playing the lossless files on a mac.
