Hi,

Just trying to upload my pod cast to itunes and google play but have a warning sign from "itunes connect" stating -

Podcast artwork must be between 1400 x 1400 and 3000 x 3000 pixels, JPG or PNG, in RGB color space, and hosted on a server that allows HTTP head requests.

I have:

- updated my profile art work in photoshop 3x from 1400x1400 pixels - 1500x1500 - 2000x2000 - no success
- adjusted the image with jpeg and png -no success
- the colours used is RGB - no success

HELP!!! ( and please be detailed.... I'm new to this.... thx)

Hi there,

The image iTunes is grabbing is your SoundCloud profile picture. This can sometimes be confused with a track artwork for instance. Here's the steps to change that: https://help.soundcloud.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003450007-Profile-image-and-header

Other than that, best way to get started is to review our Podcasting section on the Help Center. I couldn't describe it in more detail myself, really. :-)

I think there is a bug in SoundCloud with this. When I went to my profile and clicked "edit" and changed my pic there, it wouldn't work with itunes. But, when I was on my profile, and clicked "update image" right under my existing pic, itunes took it just fine. Weird.
Been struggling with the same problem, clicked 'update image' instead of 'edit' and worked just fine.
I am struggling to get this feature to work :(

" Podcast artwork must be between 1400 x 1400 and 3000 x 3000 pixels, JPG or PNG, in RGB color space, and hosted on a server that allows HTTP head requests."

I uploaded an image 1400x1400 as my profile and it is a Jpeg type, 262KB size. Doesn't work for me. Why?
