Your podcast cover is a visual representation of your show. It’s going to appear in podcast directories, on the embeddable players, and on your podcast website.
Podcast Info #
To upload a podcast cover, you need to navigate to the Podcast Info section of your show.
From the main dashboard (the first page you see upon logging in) click Podcast in the left navigation, click the Manage button on the show you are planning to update, and from the newly refreshed navigation (you’re not in the Podcast Management Portal) click Podcast Info.
This will open the overview page with all of your podcast’s important information.
Click on the Red Camera icon on the left side of the screen to upload cover art for your podcast.
Podcast Website Banner #

Best Practices #
File Types: Save your cover as a JPEG or PNG file
Shape: Ensure your podcast is square.
Size: You want to have a cover no smaller than 1400 x 1400 pixels and no larger than 3000 x 3000 pixels. We have a 2MB upload limit and suggest you save your file as a JPEG with the dimensions 1400 x 1400 pixels.
Pro Tips! #
Make sure your cover clearly conveys your brand by displaying your logo and/or podcast show name.
Avoid adding unnecessary text that will clutter the cover.
Apple recommends: Avoid putting important artwork elements at the bottom fifth of your image as they may be obscured by play progress, labels, or subscription offerings.
