Using Bento to Organize your Library on the iPad

Below are the steps to enter Bento Database records on the iPad for new media that is acquired.  The biggest problem that it solves is knowing what digital media one has acquired, and where to find it.
Music
  1. Use chrome to find images (medium size)
  2. Store in album_art as artist_album ~ 500×500 pixels, Jpeg
  3. Use Air Sharing to transfer to iPad, then on iPad transfer to Photos
  4. Enter into bento
Books
  1. Use Chrome to find images
  2. Store in book_art ~500×500 pixels, jpeg
  3. Filename “author_title”
  4. Use Air Sharing to transfer to iPad, then on iPad transfer to Photos
  5. Enter into bento on ipad

An alternative to using Air Sharing would be to use a direct connection to the host computer (through USB Port) and using iTunes to do the transfer.  This would make sense if doing more than five entries at a time.
