Album Art Specifications

Your release cover art should be in the following specification. This is a requirement by the many partners we work with.

  • a minimum resolution of 72dpi (we recommend 300dpi)  
  • RGB color mode (CMYK will not show up correctly)
  • JPEG file format
  • Do not send us thumbnails, .png files or images smaller than the requested size.

Is there anything that is NOT allowed on my release cover art?
