If you want to add some excitement to your dock, or perhaps are irrationally angered by the round blue iTunes icon, OS X Daily shares a neat tip on how to replace your iTunes icon with art for whichever album you’re currently listening to.
This trick uses a free iTunes plugin called DockArt to do it’s work, and requires iTunes 10.4 or later. Here’s how to set it up:
- Download DockArt for free from the developers page
- Quit iTunes
- From the OS X Desktop, hit Command+Shift+G to bring up the “Go To Folder” window and enter the following directory path: ~/Library/iTunes/iTunes Plug-Ins/
- Drag the ‘DockArt.bundle’ file into that folder
- Relaunch iTunes and start playing a song
DockArt supports more customization as well, including the ability to adjust the size of the icon, display a progress bar, and more. You can check out the original article over at OS X Daily.
