St. Patrick's Day Welcome

Happy St. Patrick's Day and Welcome to Easy Stackin'. Today is the first day of this Blog inception. As a novice here in the technical field, I soon plan to have postings of the best of easy-listening music to share on the Net. I have been inspired by other 'blogger's' with the same interest and thought it was my time to join them by sharing my record collection, too!
So being a novice and this is the start of what I hope to be something BIG, I can use help. I've already set-up the blog space. I assume I need to set-up a 'Rapid-Share' type of service? My main concern and desire any help is how do I get album cover art on the site for each recording I wish to share? I can use my digital camera. That would make it look like an eBay item. I've heard you can scan parts of the cover on a scanner and then paste them together on PhotoShop?
Okay, help me out here. I really want to make the album art look well for you. In the mean time, here's a few albums that I've recently converted to digital format that should be shared here soon.

Although, these two albums are by Mantovani, my biggest favorite is Ray Conniff and Ronnie Aldrich. So, as soon as I find the quick ways to handle posting and sharing the files, they'll be here.
