Script of the Day: Make an EQ Preset Script

Make An EQ Preset Script will create a new AppleScript applet using data from a selected EQ preset. When that applet is run it will re-create the EQ preset you selected...in any iTunes (on a Mac, of course).

In the screenshot, the selected applet was created by the script, and the applet created the EQ setting:

This makes it easy to accurately share your EQ Presets with friends or make back-ups of your EQ Presets.

Script of the Day: Save Album Art as folder.jpg

Save Album Art as folder.jpg 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.

Script of the Day: Merge-Delete Playlists

Merge-Delete Playlists will allow you to merge the track contents of two or more playlists or delete any number of playlists at once, including Smart, Genius, and Playlist Folder playlists.

Merge-Delete Playlists

The merge feature will prevent the same tracks that may appear in different source playlists from being duplicated and has an option to delete original playlists. The delete feature only deletes the playlist; tracks, of course, remain in the library.
