    Hi. Is there any way to make the album art display larger? The default size may be fine for a 13" MBA, but they're tiny to the point of being ridiculous on a 27" iMac (or I'm guessing a rMBP). Thanks in advance for any help. Bn

    I wondered the same thing until I clicked the green (expand) button in the upper-left corner, and voila! Fills the screen.

    When you are in Artists view you certainly can increase/decrease the album art sizes. It's in one of the upper menus. There's about 6 sizes using a slider.
    It's under View/Options I think. Click around.

    The default size is slammed all the way to the right, and it's too small for my tastes.

    On Windows I noticed if you enable the sidebar (CTRL S) then resize it (sideways), you'll notice that the album art scales a little bit in order to conserve the same amount of columns until it gives up and changes the number of columns.

    Likewise if you simply resize the main window. It's kinda dumb that you have to resize the window to change the album art size.

    With window there is a way to resize the album artwork. Hold down Ctrl key then click the album artwork when playing a song and you get the old resizeable artwork which you can resize to your liking by dragging any corner of the window that pops up. Not sure if something similar will work in apple iOS.

    I am using iTunes 11.1 on a windows 7 machine.
