What are the album artwork requirements?

We’re not expecting a Picasso, but we also don’t want a Poocasso 💩

You can use original artwork, purchased artwork or artwork that is under a creative commons licence.

Your artwork file should be less than 25mb, use the RGB colour space and be saved as a .jpg at 3000 × 3000 pixels.

RouteNote cannot accept any artwork containing:

  • Web addresses
  • Contact information of any kind (including social media tags)
  • Pornographic images
  • Pricing information
  • Copyrighted images
  • Scans of CD’s
  • Blurry or pixelated images
  • Barcodes or anything else that suggests it’s a physical copy

Check out our blog post on How to find album artwork if you’re stuck for inspiration.
