Tagging media files is the most important thing you can do to take control of your iTunes library. You could add all your music to your iTunes library, and play it at random, but without correct tags, you’d never find what you want, and you wouldn’t be able to make unique smart playlists. To correctly organize your music, tagging is essential.
In this chapter, I’ll show you the tags you can change, how to change them for single and multiple items, and how to streamline tagging so you can easily organize your library. (Note: I mostly discuss music here, but the methods of tagging are the same for all types of files.)
