My itunes is white, It's been white since forever. I work Nights, when i go to select my music after just waking up the glow of this white is amazingly aweful. If there was only someway to kill off all the white. It's not my monitors, I have had plenty over the years itunes all giving the eye killer.

Windows 7, Itunes!

    Unfortunately, iTunes does not yet support skins. You might want to have a look at this discussion thred about indirect ways to change the appearance of your iTunes: How do I change my iTunes skin?

     

    Warning: the thread features non-official ways of changing your iTunes appearance. I would advise you not to try anything unless you are absolutely sure about it.

    Uh... turn down the brightness on the monitor.  Give yourself a few minutes for your eyes to adjust after waking up before opening iTunes.

     

    There are many ways to deal with the issue... they simply require a little common sense on the part of the user.  Turning on other lights in the room might even help... a bright monitor in an otherwise dark room is difficult on the eyes.

    The monitor is fine as i stated before, I already have the brightness at a good level for all programmes

    Not really.

    It is too bright for iTunes.

    If you don't mind using the Grid view then Edit > Preferences > General tab > Grid View: Dark ought to help.

     

    Otherwise the consensus seems to be that we are not aware of any other ways to adjust the brightness of iTunes relative to other applications, which leaves you with looking for alternative lines of attack. E.g. ambient light, reducing screen brightness or, if you are prepared to wait for something that may never happen, posting feedback.

    You stated, "I already have the brightness at a good level for all programmes".

    iTunes is a "programme".

    Please read the whole sentance (sic) you wrote before you actually post anything.

     

    "Lighten up Francis..."

     

    As noted, send feedback.
