  * contribute the art upstream so everyone can enjoy it. In return you
    get to use the well tested automatic process for fanart.

  * put it somewhere on the web (may be local) and add proper custom
    metadata (e.g. MXML) see

contributing upstream has the nice side effect of having a backup in
case of a disk crash, etc. pp.
