Edit Album Information

You don't have to adjust your track information on a song-by-song basis. You can edit an entire album's tracks simultaneously by clicking the Album name in the iTunes browser (or on its cover in Grid View) and pressing Ctrl+I (⌘-I) to bring up the Get Info box.

Ever careful, iTunes flashes an alert box asking if you really want to change the info for a bunch of things all at once. Click Yes.

You can make all sorts of changes to an album in the four-tabbed box that pops up. Here are just a few examples:

❶ Fix a typo or mistake in the Album or Artist name boxes.

❷ Manually add an album cover or photo of your choice to the whole album by dragging it into the Artwork box.

❸ Click the Options tab and change the Equalizer preset for all the songs.

❹ Have iTunes skip the album when you're shuffling music—great for keeping winter holiday music out of your summer barbecue album rotation.

❺ Tell iTunes to play back the album without those two-second gaps between tracks by choosing the "Gapless album" option. (Perfect for opera and Abbey Road!)
