    I'm sure a lot of us have gone to the trouble of getting Album cover art for our songs in iTunes.Alright....great,but what good is it if you minimize iTunes while you are on other sites. It would neat if you could have the album covers pop up on your Dock while you are other sites? Yes?......No ?

    Get dockart from versiontracker/macupdates.
    Free and changes the itunes icon to the album artwork - overlaying the itunes icon is an option.

    Thanks...that's exactly what I need. Downloaded it twice....does not work. What am I doing wrong? You may have to walk me thru the process. Tried re-starting iTunes...still nothing .


    Thanks again

    Have you copied the plugin to your ~/Library/iTunes/iTunes Plug-Ins directory

    That's the /Library under your username.
    See pic1

    Restart itunes

    Then select dockart under the iTunes' Visualizer menu.

    See pic2

    No kidding. I just felt it was a shame to go to all the trouble of getting cover art and then not be able to put it to use when you minimize iTunes.

    Thanks again.
