iTunes allows users to manage data on the iPhone, iPod and iPad devices.The data can be music or other multimedia files and if they are not managed properly, duplicates of the same track may exist. It is possible to display and then remove duplicate tracks in the iTunes library to save memory. This article will show you the easiest ways to remove duplicate songs and clean up your iTunes.
It is relatively simple to find all duplicates that are in your iTunes library.
If you have got hundreds of duplicates in your iTunes library, you can sort them by date. Typically duplicates were added at a later stage, therefore it is likely that they are now displayed consecutively. Select the first and last duplicate file by holding down the Shift key and remove all duplicate files from your iTunes library.
You can prevent this issue from occurring using the following steps which will stop iTunes from copying music files.
If you didn't purchase music in the iTunes Store, e.g. you imported tracks from CDs or downloaded the files, it may be that tags and artwork are missing from your tracks in the iTunes library. In iTunes you can add artwork and tags automatically.
iTunes will start searching for corresponding tags and artwork online and will automatically add them to the selected tracks.
If this doesn't automatically work, you can enter the information manually. This is also how you can adjust the size of album work if for whatever reason it appears too big or too small.
Note: iTunes recommends a ratio 1:1 for the size ie.1600x1600. As the album, titles are square. The album artwork will fit to size, but a higher quality image will look better.
