Frequently asked questions.

What makes a good album cover?

A good album cover is one that captures the content of the album, while also serving as an expressive outlet for the artist. So, create the cover art design that feels right for you. If you need inspiration, start with our template gallery, then customize with the world of professional design tools and assets right at your fingertips.
Can I use my own images on my cover art?
Upload your own images, along with your logo, branded elements, and color palette. Use our editing tools to enhance your images, including filters, borders, and the remove background tool.
What is the recommended size for the album cover?
Your cover art size could depend on your destination. Vinyl album covers are a 12.375” square, while CD covers are a 4.75” square. Cover art for streaming services can also vary. Spotify recommends 640px by 640px, and Apple Music requires a minimum size of 4000px by 4000px. Start your design with your destination in mind. If anything, start big, and you can always size down depending on the platform.
