iTunes 11 is a radical departure from previous versions and
nothing illustrates this more than the new album display mode. The
headlining feature of this display is the new view style that
visually matches the track listing to the album’s cover art. The
result is an attractive display of textual information that
seamlessly integrates with the album’s artwork.
After using iTunes for a day I wondered just how hard it would be
to mimic this functionality — use a source image to create a
themed image/text display.
