Konix PM - 20 November, Quote:. Konix PM - 20 November, And also I'm at work, so I can't mess with it right now and I've been saying that I'm gonna try the tips that everybody's been giving.
If you only have one, two, or three different albums in your playlist, one of those album's covers will be the cover art for your playlist. But album arts are always missing if the MP3 files are recorded online or ripped from videos or CD. The program comes with advanced and top-notch features that make it the number 1 program on the web for creating high-quality slideshow movies and adding music to a slideshow. All Rights Reserved. When you manually add artwork, iTunes will only add that artwork to the songs that you select. On a standard iTunes installation, you can find it here:. Then right click and select Delete Text.
I'm not a fan of itunes because I never needed it for anything. I can organize my music into crates in SSL-no need to use itunes there. On a PC I could just edit my files directly without any programs-no need for itunes there. I don't use my computer for personal listening purposes-I have a home stereo for that-so no need for itunes there.
I'm not a computer person. So maybe I'm just ignorant to these things, so please shed some light as to how itunes can improve my digital DJing life. LoKey PM - 20 November, Let me give yall a breakdown of my process: When I download songs, they all go into a folder on my desktop called 'temp.
I like uniformity in my files which is why I'm so concerned with this issue. Then I highlight all the files in the temp folder and drag them all into my external HD into the main 'My Music' folder which is where all my MP3's live. From there I open up SSL and drag each file into the corresponding crate. This is my method, I can't think of anything simpler than that and I don't have to use itunes or anything else that gets in the way.
LoKey PM - 20 November, Konix, I'm talking about right-clicking on the file, clicking on properties, clicking the summary tab and editing all the info. On a PC. And on the album art Last night took a file from the folder I created to store music. In that folder you can see the album art very small next to the file.
I dragged the file into itunes, clicked on 'get info,' edited all the file info, went to images and deleted the album art. I closed 'get info' and reopened it to make sure the album art was gone and it was. I thought I was good. Then I opened the music folder again and the album art was still there! Then I dragged the file back into itunes, opened up 'get info' and sure enough, the album art was back, big and colorful laughing right in my face.
Thats what frustrated me the most. I like my files looking like this artist - title. When I rip a file in iTunes, the Mac does it the way that it wants. I don't know how to make it the way that I like it. I'm trying to get used to the Mac.
Every Mac owner says that they are so great. The help at the Apple store is terrible. I signed up for "One to One" and the helpers don't have a clue of many of the things that I want and when I say "it is much easier on Windows", they get pissed.
I'm trying and I know that I'll get used to the Mac someday. Konix PM - 20 November, Yes, the artist, album, genre, year, track , etc.
Then click on the music icon button to the right. This shows your selected music and a Music Library button under it. Click that button and then look at the list of songs below — either songs from iTunes or songs included with Photos. Just click on another one to add it.
You can then drag and drop in the top list to reorder them. Another option for more control is to use something else, like iMovie, where you can highly customize the slideshow and put as many songs as you like in the audio track. But when you are done with the photos, drag and drop your songs to just under the video track and add the first song at the start, and then the second one right after the first one ends in the timeline.
If you have never used iMovie before, it may take some time to learn the interface. You could also make the slideshow in Photos 2.
