I purchased a bundle of dBpoweramp Reference R16 & PerfectTUNES on 4 July 2016. After downloaded and started to rip CD via CD Ripper, it worked fast and created the album art. I am quite satisfied with its performance. Later on, after opened PerfectTUNES and tried Album Art and added the folder of my music library, the Programme spent 3 hours to add Album Art. As a result, only 38 albums did not find their album arts. However, I could not find a photo in any album after its timely working.
Did I use the wrong method so that the Album Art failed to add album arts to those files in my music library?

Did you ask the art to be embedded or added to album folder as "folder.jpg" or "cover.jpg"? What program are you using for playback and showing artwork/metadata? It doesn't show any artwork??

Yes! Using My Computer (Window 7), Apps from Runeaudio and Aurender.

You can check the tags with dBpoweramp, right click on a track >> Edit IDTag

if there is album art it will be shown.

but is the artwork embedded in a tag or a separate file within the album folder (e.g., cover.jpg or folder.jpg)?

After viewing by Edit IDTag, I could not locate any album covers for those tracks / song folders that spent 3 more hours by PerfectTUNES to add album covers. I do find out album covers to those newly ripped by dbpoweramp.

Rerun the album art program, the first 3 hours potentially is the program scanning the audio to fingerprint it.

Did you click the fix button in album art program? and watch the list as it replaced the art?

I tried to select one song folder (in WAV format) for trial. Followings were the result:
1. selected 'add folder' under Music Library to add that song folder,
2. pressed 'Album Art', the process showed scanned 63 tracks (actually there were only 7 tracks inside my selected song folder) and give a wrong album art cover for me to fix. After selected fix album, I used ID Tag to check the results, there was no cover art found.
