Add Album Art To an MP3 from Command Line

As I work on Super Secret Project X, one of the things that would make it a little handier would be the ability to add album art to MP3s from the OS X command line. I had been using mp3info2 as my tool for manipulating ID3 tags from the command line, but it doesn’t do album art. I dug around a little and found EyeD3, which is a bunch of python packages at it’s heart. I downloaded the source package and followed the directions, and it works great on my iBook. Right on!
