I apologize if this is old news: I’m trying to fire up a script I wrote years ago, that worked fine years ago, but which now crashes. Here it is in it’s simplest form:
tell application "iTunes" set thisTrack to current track set thisArt to artwork 1 of thisTrack set thisPic to data of thisArt as picture end tell
It appears to now be broken, at least in iTunes 12. It’s the third line that kills. I get a “Can’t make <<data … [very long string of data] …>> to picture [SIC]”. The only posts I’ve been able to find so far are from around 2010 when this was working, and they use this syntax. I even copy/pasted from a tutorial thinking maybe I was losing my mind, but hit the same error.
What is the proper Applescript for capturing an image file from iTunes artwork now?
