Multi-Item Edit v4.1

OS X 10.8 or later. This applet will allow you to edit most tags (and some additional options) of the selected track(s) in a single floating window using single-edit mode (one selected track) or multi-edit mode, which emulates the pre-iTunes 12 "multiple items" format; that is, a checkbox adjacent to each tag allows you to select which changes are to be applied to the selection's tags.

Thanks to Wolfgang Reszel for the icon.

Show In Playlists v1.1

OS X 10.9 and later. This stay-open applet monitors iTunes and detects when library tracks have been selected and then displays a heirarchical list of the playlists containing the selected track(s) (emulating iTunes' "Show In Playlist"). Can also be set to monitor only playing tracks. Clicking a playlist in the list chooses it in iTunes--and if a single track had been selected then it will be selected in the chosen playlist. Additionally, the monitoring routine can be toggled off temporarily so that the current list of playlists remains fixed yet still selectable.

Action shot:

Show In Playlists in action

The playlists containing the last track selection with the current selected playlist colored blue.

Save Album Art to Album Folder v5.2

OS X 10.8 or later only. This script will export the artwork of the selected tracks (or the tracks in a selected playlist) as an image file to the folder which contains each selected track's file--presumably the track's Album folder--or a single user-selected folder. If multiple album tracks are selected, the script will make sure only one artwork file per Album is exported.

Also see Save Album Art as folder.jpg.

Save Album Art as folder.jpg v3.2

OS X 10.8 or later only. This script will export the artwork of the selected tracks or tracks in the selected playlist as a JPEG image file named folder.jpg to the folder which contains each selected track's file--presumably the track's Album folder. Many third-party music players and systems (Sonos, for example) may look for a "folder.jpg" here to use as display artwork. If multiple album tracks are selected, the script will make sure only one image file per Album is exported.

Based on Save Album Art to Album Folder.

Action shot:

Save Album Art as folder.jpg in action

The main settings for the script. My understanding is that other common filenames include "cover.jpg" and "album.jpg".

Batch Export Playlists v1.5

OS X 10.9 or later. iTunes can only export a single playlist at a time (File > Library > Export Playlist...). This applet will export each selected plain, Smart, and Genius playlist as individual XML or M3U files to a user selected directory. Such files can be imported into iTunes again later or into other devices or apps. Not as fast as iTunes' own "Export Playlist..." command, but it does the job without the repetition required.

Also see Export Selected Tracks to XML.

Action shot:

Batch Export Playlists in action

Select some playlists, choose the file type, and click on "Export".

PDF Adder v5.1

These two AppleScripts each assist with adding PDF files to iTunes as "digital booklet" PDF tracks. Each provides a method for easily supplying Author (artist), Album, Category (genre), Year, Rating and Description tag data which is then applied to the newly-added PDF track entry:

  • Add as PDF to iTunes is a PDF Service workflow that, when installed, will be available in the PDF pop-up menu of the Print Dialog. It allows you to save the current document as a PDF file (from any application that uses the Print Dialog) and add it to iTunes. I describe here how I use it with Safari Reader.
  • PDF Adder is an applet/droplet that will let you choose or drag-and-drop an existing PDF file and add it to iTunes. It can be installed in iTunes' Scripts folder for easy access from iTunes Script menu.

Here are some suggestions for your own "digital booklets":

  • Album lyrics/liner notes
  • Music production notes
  • Manuals
  • Receipts/order confirmations
  • DJ set lists
  • Podcast addenda
  • Audiobook chapter synopses
  • Lecture notes
  • Sound effects indexes

Anything you can print, you can make into a PDF...and any PDF can be added to iTunes.

For OS X 10.8 and later.

Action shot:

PDF Adder in action

Each script displays a window like this one. You'll be able to assign the new PDF track Author, Album, Category, Year, Rating and Description tags.
