How to insert album cover art on music files?


I have searched the net for answers and I have not found any feasible answer to the question:
"How to insert album cover art on music files?"

I have about 4-6TB of music on external hard drives. Much of this music came from live broadcast sources through the years. I also have much HR music recorded from various on line services recorded via a HR Tascam recorder then transferred to the hard drive.
How can I insert a picture into those music files on my hard drive? Low rez sources such as iTunes, or mp3 conversion is not an option.

The missing artwork at the beginning of the albums is now there. Must of been a delay thing while upgrading the file.
I only added the artwork, the rest of the album info is not worth the effort to me.

Well I'm up to the H's adding cover art to my HiRez files.
Perfect thing to keep an ole' retiree working...

kgturner, glupson,
Can I just pick the files on my hard drive that I want the art work added?
Can I just cut and paste the pictures to go on my hard drive?

mapman,
Any audio degradation converting the wav files to flac?

edicionretro,
Is it just called Meta? When I do a search I get all kinds of crazy results.

I have noticed that the beginning of some songs  (wav) do not display the album art. Very strange.

mapman,
Thanks.
Can any of these allow me to use my own pictures?

I’m going to look into the suggestions. 
So, I will be able to just plug the hard drive into my computer and then add artwork to files I want?
Or, do I need to add all the info from the hard drive into the downloaded program first?
I ask this because I think that is what Music Media required.
First, it is so time consuming and second it will probably overload my computer.

As you can tell I am not of the computer generation, but trying.

Do any of these cost money to download?
And I already have the music on the hard drive and most are in the wav format.

Just tried MP3Tag... and I got it to work.
I need to get used to it more but I was able to make it work.

Thanks, so far so good!

Thanks for the help, I've been adding art to my files this afternoon.
I'm up to the C's.
It's gonna take a while.

glupson,
Isn't that a lot of extra work?
Do you find it to be helpful?

Thank you all for the help. I now have cover art on all my HR files.
