Question

iTunes won't validate my podcast feed


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. :-)

Happy Podcasting

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.
