Replace iTunes Dock Icon With ‘Now Playing’ Album Art

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.
