Unhappy Artwork Cover missing in WAV File

Just bought a Tin5ha - Remember The Sunset/NE.JI.MA.KI Singles from Audiojelly both are in WAV Format, yeah my 1st purchase with WAV Files (Usually bought AAC Format from iTunes Stores). However the issue is Not about the Memory size but the Artwork cover of each track are missing & yet cannot be edit through iTunes as it says "Artwork Not Modifiable".

Is it normal as in WAV file & should I contact to Audiojelly about this error?

Missing? Do wav files even support artwork? I don't think they do...

It's not so much the wav as the audio software you're using. You can stick ID3v1 on the back back end* and ID3v2 tags on the front of any file. If the wav player will ignore that data, then you can stick the artwork in an APIC frame with the description CoverArtwork. There's also the APE standard, though I don't know much about it (it does support cover art) and something called WAVE LIST which I very little about.

* I can't recall if it supports pictures and I'm not going to go digging through the spec to find out
** Technically it can go on the back as well, but it's not done in practice and the spec almost treats it as an "in passing" thing

WAV files do not support ID3 tags (artwork, title, artist, etc). You could convert them to AIFF files, which are pretty much the same lossless quality as WAV, but allow ID3 tags.

You're stuck without artwork i'm afraid. Terrible for anyone with artwork OCD. Something nice about having an image with the tracks on your ipod/iTunes

All is not lost. If you have iTunes, do right click, that is on the song that you want to find the album artwork for, and you should see something like a "Get Album Artwork". iTunes will then find the album artwork and then process it into the song, and assuming you have an iPod, it will come up on the iPod! Hope that helps!
