    if you have Photoshop. Open .gif, save as .jpeg. or use freeware Graphic Converter.

    tried to do it, and it wont work. i tried deleting the album, re importing it, and adding the artwork, still to no avail. any remedies for this? or does the problem lie with my synergy?(it wont show in synergy, i forgot to tell).

    try getting your artwork from another source, say, www.allmusic.com. i get my artworks from this site and so far it hasn't failed me.

    oof! didn't realize you were looking for an opm artwork! sorry about that! oh, have you tried searching through google photos? sometimes, if i can't find the artwork through allmusic.com, that's where i look.

    oh, and since you have a .gif file of the picture, double click it and it will open in preview. then click "save as" and choose the jpeg format. maybe this will work.
