5. Creating and Using Playlists

Playlists—customized lists of songs—are a great way to group songs, whether for playback in iTunes, for creating audio CDs, for transferring to or from an iPod, or for sharing with others over a network.

We’ll use this chapter to teach you how to create playlists and mold them to your liking (by reordering and deleting songs in them).

We’ll cover both kinds of playlists that you create in iTunes: regular playlists (which you create yourself) and Smart Playlists (which iTunes creates automatically based on predefined criteria you set).

At the end of the chapter, we’ll cover how you put specific playlists on your iPod and how you create playlists on your iPod that can be transferred back to iTunes.
