Key points about changing your artwork on your account

  • You need to change the image file name of your podcast artwork or your artwork will not update in iTunes.
  • According to Apple: “iTunes supports images in JPEG and PNG formats with a RGB color space (CMYK is not supported). The URL must end in “.jpg” or “.png”.”
  • Once you do change your artwork, it may not update immediately. Please be patient.
  • When one image updates on iTunes others may not have updated yet.  Different images update at different points.
