We are excited to announce that you can now add custom artwork to each individual episode on your podcast. 

Episode specific cover art is another way to add visual flair to your show and tell your audience what each episode is about without needing to read your description. 

To add episode art, you’ll need to either create a new episode or simply edit a previous one!

From your podcast dashboard, click a previous episode to edit it, or hit the new episode button. Regardless of whether you’re editing a previous episode or creating a new one, you’ll follow similar instructions for adding your artwork.

Next click the “Upload episode art” button, and choose any image that is 1400X1400 pixels from your computer to upload.
Then, you’ll position your artwork until it fits in the square box the way you would like it to be seen by your audience.

Now click “Add episode art” for the image to be saved to your episode page.

Finally, if you’re creating a new episode, you’ll finish adding your episode details, upload your audio file, and then select “Schedule” or “Publish Now” for your episode to go live on your public page.

If you’re editing a previous episode, however, you’ll instead click the save button to finish the editing process.

Once you’ve started adding cover art to each individual episode, this is how it will look on Platforms like Spotify:

Note the difference between the episode that has a cover picture and the ones that don’t. At a quick glance, your listeners can see your thumbnails and click on the ones that pique their interest. 

We hope you enjoy this new feature!
