iTunes Genre Editor

This program allows you to edit the genre art that iTunes displays in Genre View, as well as add art for your own genres.

Genre View has evolved through various versions of iTunes. In the latest version as of this writing, v12.2.2, Genre view displays the genres in a sidebar to the left of the window, with the music at the right. In older versions, genre view looked similar to the current Album View, with each genre having a big square which you could double-click to see the associated music (see here).

This Flickr group has a good number of possible genre art. If you have made some of your own, consider adding it to the group, or send it to me and I will host it on this page.

You can find the source code on Github. Send me a pull request if you make any changes, so I can incorporate them in!

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
