Clean Up Your itunes

This is a simple tweak that you can do with your itunes music, so if you are a pro user of itunes then I would like to say thank you for stopping by and talk to you again soon! 🙂

Hello everybody:) So I was just thinking today, WOW I have a gang of music on my computer in my itunes. I have over a 100 Gigs of music, video, and podcast that includes just about every genre that their is on this green earth. (Including my Favorite Tickle Me Elmo Jingles) I remember when their was a time that my music library was really jumbled and unorganized. So browsing my music can be a little teadious, especially if I am not quite sure what I feel like listening to. That was when I decided to make my life a little more simple.

Soooo… with that being said, I am sure that all of you that may be reading this post have purchased your music directly from the itunes store or which ever music affiliate of your choice. Because it is the moral thing to do! Right?

Haha.. Yeah right! As much as I appreciate the talent of the musicians out there and the quality of the art/content that they produce. I’m sorry but Nobody pays for their music anymore. Well almost Nobody!

And when you don’t pay for your music you don’t always get all of the things that come with the nice cellophane wrapping. Those things would be the Album cover and lyrics and blah blah…

So back to itunes.

In itunes their are nice little applications that allow you to see all of your music. You can view it in a List format, a thumbnail or album format, and the ever popular coverflow format. So.. if you’re like me, you may or may not like the list format. Which is the most simple style their is for itunes.. I like the coverflow because it just looks a little bit more stylish and cool. “Like oooh look at all my album covers that I accumulated”. 🙂

One problem though.. YOU DON’T HAVE ALL THE ALBUM COVERS!!

Sooooo… One of the easiest ways to fix that problem is to to do a couple of things:

1. Open itunes

That was easy right…COol..

This allows you to use itunes database to upload album covers that they already have on file.

-You may or may not get all the covers that you need! When this happens this is what you do!

1. Open itunes
2. Select Your Music tab on the left hand side of the itunes player
3. Switch to the Cover Flow view (the far right tab next to search box in the top right corner)
4. Go to the Song that you want to add a Album cover to.
5. Right Click or command click with a Mac the song of choice, SELECT Get Info
6. Choose the Artwork Tab
7. Then You click the ADD button

– when you click ADD; itunes will prompt you to choose the location of the picture..
– You can use of picture of yourself or you can Google for the image of the album cover and save to your computer so that you can upload it to itunes.

This may take some time depending on the amount music you have, but it will look so much better when you finish the process.. 😉
