But it is not possible to copy and paste album art any more. I need that functionality all the time. It is really annoying that this is not possible any more.

1) Why do you need that functionality all the time?

2) It's still possible.

I don't care for the MiniPlayer and the fact this isn't just a pic of the album cover but a resizable one with overlay controls means I don't have to have the entire window dedicated to my iTunes app.


It is not a big issue that the album art in the bottom left corner is gone. What is the issue is that some people claim that album art with controls window is a viable way of controlling iTunes. It is not. All the controls in it are replicated on the keyboard and are faster to use via the keyboard. Most of the real interaction with iTunes is selecting what one wants to play, not hitting the start/stop button or adjusting the volume. This means, iTunes is either in the background and you interact with it via the keyboard or you are browsing your library (or do other 'work' in it). In neither situation is the album art window of any use (unless you have truly too much screen real estate and can keep it tucked away in a corner somewhere but most people would not want that extra visual distraction while they work on their computer).

Of course it is. Do it.

The "Part of a gapless album" checkbox had nothing to do with gapless playback. iTunes does that by default. Checking that option would keep two adjacent album tracks from being played back-to-back when the crossfade option was turned on.

So they removed the ability to use the keyboard to control iTunes 11? 1confused.gif

1: Because I rip a lot of CDs, and iTunes usually can't find the album art. Just last week I ripped 75 CDs and iTunes didn't find any of the album art. Each CD contains many works - those CDs probably contained at least 200 works.

 

2: No it isn't. Yes, it is possible to paste album art by selecting the work, open the Info-window and paste it there. This, however means 3 operations for what earlier took only 1. And some times iTunes finds the album art for one work, but not for the others on the CD. Earlier I could copy the album art from the iTunes window and paste it in for the other works. This isn't possible any more. Now I have 3 options - either find the album art on the internet, Make a screen dump (CMD-Ctrl-Shift-4) or take a photo of the CD. Very inconvenient.

Copy album art to clipboard, right click on the album, choose Get Info, paste image, hit OK to save. Regardless if you feel it's less convenient than it was before you clearly stated "it is not possible to copy and paste album art any more" and "is not possible any more" despite being informed twice now that it is possible to copy and paste artwork into iTunes.

You are right - I was not being precise. My only excuse is that English is not my first language. It is possible to paste album art (I'm not too sure about copying though...). But it is much more inconvenient and takes much more time. They took something that was very easy and fast in iTunes 10 and made it much more difficult and inconvenient in iTunes 11. 

I don't quite understand why. If they used the space they saved for something useful, I could understand it, but as far as I can see they don't. It is very convenient to have the album art displayed in the main window and not having to open a separate window to see it properly. When you have more than 30 recordings of Beethoven's 3rd Symphony as I have, the album art becomes necessary.

 

Why could'n they have added a "Copy albumart" and "Paste albumart" to the contextual menu you get when you right-click on an album? That would have solved my main problem. I can live with not having the album art in the main window, as I find that I use the miniplayer for playback much more now than before, and with the miniplayer as the main window, having an extra window open for the album art is not a problem.

Any workarounds?

 

Not sure if this is what you mean but in a list view, you can select all (Cmd A) then get info (Cmd i) and in the first tab (info) there is an 'Artwork' box where you can past art that will be embedded in the file

post #52 of 72

Yes, I know. But the old way was much more convenient - just paste the album art on the "Album art field" in the main Window. Which is now gone. And some times iTunes would find the correct album art for one work on a CD, but not for the other. Then you could just copy the album art from the same field, and paste in that field for the other works. This doesn't work any more. I have not found where I can copy albumart from an album in iTunes. Does anybody know?

 

Thank you for the suggestion.

 

BTW: It is just a nuisance, not a dealbreaker. In general I like iTunes11 better than iTunes10. I just don't understand whay they would remove this functionality.

Are you asking how to "capture" the artwork from one song and apply it to other songs?

 

I use the "Get Info" window. Select the track that has the album art, click the "Artwork" tab and drag the image onto the desktop. I then select all the tracks to which I want to apply that artwork, select "Get Info" again (CMND-I) and drag the image from the desktop into the artwork window in the "Info" pane.

I agree completely.  It quickly becomes annoying to manage/modify album art if you are dealing with more than a few tracks.  I find it especially irksome that you can't even see whether there is correct/any album art without either playing the track or opening the (modal) Get Info dialog and selecting the artwork tab.  All you had to do before was click the song.

 

This change is almost as annoying as not being able to open/view a playlist in a new window anymore.

Is anyone else having trouble with purchase downloads from the iTunes store in iTunes 11?  When I purchase a track, it downloads but then frequently does not show up in the library.  I then have to go to the "Purchased" link in the store and re-download it for it to be properly added to the library.  The original download files can be found languishing in my Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Downloads folder (I'm using 64-bit Windows 7).  I never had this issue in previous versions.

That would work I guess. But why make it so difficult when they already had a very easy and functional way to do it? This would become extremely tiresome if you had to do it for let's say 200 works/albums, like I sometimes have to. How much extra time would this incur for me after i ripped the 144-CD collection of Arthur Rubinsteins complete RCA-recordings (which I did a couple of months back)? Those 144 CDs probably contains more than 500 works that all should have different album art.

And why do you have to drag it to the desktop - why not make the Copy-option available from the Edit-menu?

That… doesn't make sense. Did it just start doing that?

Nope, that's always been that way.

1. I also think it's inconvenient. I also paste artwork into the lower left, pre-11, pane.

2. If you paste the art in the 2nd tab it's saved in the library, if you paste it into the 7th tab it's embedded into the song. Makes a difference: see above ^

You must realise that you are in a small minority in ripping a 144 CD collection requiring 500 different pieces of art. I would bet that the majority of users, who even rip CDs, once they have ripped their CD collection, are only adding a handful of CDs each week. Apple has removed and is not going to replace Coverflow because it is "a feature that Apple told Mossberg was considered useful by "too few users." I suspect even fewer users use iTunes in the way that you do

Adding or changing existing artwork is not that difficult using cmd+i or the two finger tap for Get Info, in fact this was the way I always added artwork previously.

You don't have to drag existing iTunes artwork to the desktop to add it to other songs. Copy and Paste may be greyed out in the Edit menu but cmd+c and cmd+v still work. To add artwork from the internet you can copy & paste or simply click and drag from website to Artwork box.

In fact, for some time it's been difficult or impossible to disable gapless playback. But this is an entirely different complaint.

As has already been pointed out by nabziF on page 1, gapless is the default setting for iTunes. All albums play this way; as soon as one track finishes the next one starts. Any 'gaps' are the fadeout on the track created by the artist/producer. Of course you can remove these natural silences if you wish by adjusting the end times of individual tracks.
I just trashed and re-ripped Giorgio Moroder's E = Mc², an album I know to have a 'gapless side', to see if it behaved any differently in iTunes 11. It doesn't; it plays 'side one' non-stop just as it's always done.

post #60 of 72

Yes, of course I realize that I'm in a small minority, but that doesn't mean that it's not a problem for me. The previous functionality worked very well, and I don't see how removing it solves any problem? In iTunes10 you could remove the field that showed the album art by clicking a button - why not leave it in?

 

But am I so special? The trend is of course to play music from your computer. On a Mac that means almost 100% iTunes. So people are ripping their CD-collections, and there are some large ones out there. I have a friend that has approximately 30-35 000 CDs that he is ripping. My brother has about the same as me - 10-15 000. An easy way to transfer the album art to iTunes (since iTunes doesn't work well with album art for classical collections) is needed. Even more so since the album art automatically added by iTunes doesn't show up if you play your iTunes-library through Sonos or another remote music system (but the album art you add yourself does).

 

I have no problem with them removing cowerflow. That was eyecandy without any special function. It looked nice, and was great for showing off iTunes, but it didn't add anything to the application. For people with large collectione (I have 21000 works (160 000 tracks) in my library) it was unusable. It took up space without adding any functionality.

 

Thank you for informing me that cmd-c and cmd-v still works. I didn't know. But since it works those options should be available in the Edit-menu. And why not have it available in the contextual menu? Available functionality should be visible.

 

And why, asPhilBoogie mentions, is there a difference in what happens depending on where you paste album art? Actually I can see the reason, but I don't understand why it isn't clear from the UI that there is a difference.

 

BTW - I just found a bug. When you paste album art to an album, some times some of the tracks are left out. Happened to me just now. I was playing Aladdin Sane which I ripped last week when I saw that after 3 tracks suddenly the album art disappeared. The same happened with the album I played before that - Down in the cellar by Al Stewart. (I don't play only classical :D  )

 

Question: How do you make the miniplayer display the name of the currently playing song?

 

BTW2: Sorry if I make too many off-topic comments (RE: the name of this thread)

Well, for starters Apple is all about simplicity. That means getting rid of the visibility of the Finders' ~/Library folder. Still available, pressing Option and such. They like to have their stuff clean, empty if you will. Some like it, some don't.

That's an old bug. Atually, there are several similar ones to that. I sometimes convert FLAC files (with XLD) and dump the resulting m4a in the (newish) folder "Automatically Add to iTunes" and even though I'm on a fast Mac it only imports a third of the tracks that get dumped in there.

Same with changing the album name; I add a lot of concerts (audience recordings) to iTunes and like to keep Concert Album Names consistent and therefore rename a lot. Skips a few tracks if 'I do it too fast'.

OT I also didn't like it when they removed the option to show more than a single cover art in the lower left pane; now only visible with Cmd-I, Cmd-7 but I digress. Things change, and iTunes is usually a tryout field for the engineers where to steer OSX next.

The thing is that those of us who rip our CDs, or even buy CDs, are in a diminishing minority. Downloads now outsell CDs, Apple hasn't updated the iPod Classic for a few years and never will, and it has removed the optical disc drive from its new iMacs. iTunes is now being steered towards iCloud usage because that's how an increasing majority are now accessing music. I'm lucky in that I ripped my existing library in 2007 and have only had incremental additions to process since then.

You don't mind them removing Coverflow, but others do. Others don't mind that album artwork has gone from the bottom corner, but you do. I don't mind that either have gone  because I didn't use either of them. The point is that Apple will never please everybody; if they tried to it would result in a very bloated and complicated App. Again, I guess I'm lucky in that I'm generally happy with iTunes 11.

I've never noticed that happening to mine. Did the artwork for those albums not download automatically? If you pasted the artwork, did you select all of the album tracks before doing so?

The Mini-player shows the title of the current song and the artist by default.

post #64 of 72

And don't forget that it is in Apple's interest to have people buying music through iTunes. There is still a good argument for buying CDs though. At the moment it is much cheaper to buy CDs than files on the internet. I paid $120 for the 144 CD Artur Rubinstein collection. It would be much more expensive to buy it as downloads (if it had been available, which it isn't).

 

As to coverflow vs. the artwork field in the main window there is a difference. Coverflow was pure eyecandy, while the the artwork field added functionality (or at least made some of iTunes functionality easier available). By removing coverflow they didn't remove any functionality or add complexity to using iTunes. By removing the artwork field they did. Big difference in my opinion. But of course I see that you cannot please everybody.

 

And my mini-player does not show the title of the current song. The artwork window does, if I mouse over it, but the miniplayer just shows the controls. It shows the name of the currently playing song for about 1 second when a new song stars, but then it is back to just showing the controls. I have not changed any settings.

 

Update: Problem with miniplayer solved. <tab> moves between controls, and if one of the controls is selected the miniplayer shows the controls and not the song title (as it should). Probably because I have checked for "<tab> moves keyboard focus between all controls" in the Keyboard shortcuts in the Keyboard control panel in OS X.

No. The album art field in the Get info window is not what I am talking about.

 

I think that CDs at the moment is cheaper than downloading because that is what I see when I go to buy music. Some times the files are cheaper, but most of the time CDs are cheaper. Probably because the big music publishers are selling their back catalogue for next to nothing. 

Whether all these files will be available at one time, I don't know. They might be, but they are not at the moment. But there is another upside to buying the CDs - you get an automatic backup. The downside is of course that they take up a lot of space.

 

As to why you don't have the problem with album art that PhilBoogie and I are having, I cannot say. I ripped 5 CDs yesterday:

The live adventures of Al Kooper & Mike Bloomfield (2 CDs)

Celebration day - Led Zeppelin (2 CDs)

Colori d'Amore - Simone Kermes

 

Of these, only the album art from the Al Kooper/Mike Bloomfield album survived when moving the files to another computer.

Are you sure? Is that unique to 11? I sometimes apply artwork to several tracks at once by selecting a bunch of songs then opening the Get Info window and dragging the image into the small Artwork field in the Info pane. I'm pretty sure the art is embedded in the tracks that way, but I haven't had occasion to try it with 11 yet and don't have access to my library to try it right now.

That… doesn't make sense. Did it just start doing that?

No, it started doing it that way with v7, and therefore created the 'Album Artwork' folder within your iTunes lib folder.

MacWorld quote:
"In the pre-iTunes 7 days, album artwork was embedded within individual music tracks. This meant that if you opened those tracks in an application capable of displaying embedded artwork, that artwork made its presence known. The downside of this scheme is that the inclusion of artwork made the file a bit bigger—artwork can be a few hundred kilobytes in size.

iTunes 7 comes along and changes everything. Album artwork is no longer embedded in files but, instead, placed in a labyrinth of artwork folders stored in these locations:

Mac: youruserfolder /Music/iTunes/Album Artwork

Windows: /My Documents/My Music/iTunes/Album Artwork"

Then why hasn't it done that for me, going back to iTunes 1? Yes, 1.

Aah, v1

Are you sure? Is that unique to 11? I sometimes apply artwork to several tracks at once by selecting a bunch of songs then opening the Get Info window and dragging the image into the small Artwork field in the Info pane. I'm pretty sure the art is embedded in the tracks that way, but I haven't had occasion to try it with 11 yet and don't have access to my library to try it right now.

Apparently they changed it back to how it was; artwork is indeed embedded into individual songs. Sorry guys - my bad.

Oh my, that's bad! How come you still have that Album Artwork folder? I thought you always did a clean install with every major OSX release? I did, and restored my files from TM after installing .8

No Album Artwork folder at my end...

It still USES it, apparently!

 

Guess it's time to rebuild my iTunes Library from scratch.
