Yes, you can include an image in an ID3v2 tag.  Let's start with the 
pictorial explaination (no pun intended)


Note that ID3v1 tags do not support image encapsulation.

If you are looking to write software to manipulate the ID3v2 tag in an 
audio file, then look at


section 4.14 for the APIC - Attached Picture - frame specification

If you're just looking for a program to manipulate the ID3v2 headers, 
there are quite a few to choose from at 
http://www.id3.org/implement.html  Unfortunately the list on this page 
is woefully out of date.
