Updating Podcast Artwork

Sometimes you will want to refresh your existing Podcast Artwork, or completely rebrand with a new design! Making that change in Buzzsprout and on your listings is really simple. 

First, you will need to be sure your new artwork meeting Apple's image standards and then replace the existing artwork on your Podcast Settings page. When that is done, the file will automatically be updated in your Buzzsprout RSS feed so your listings will be able to refresh the artwork on their end. 

However, Apple Podcasts and other directories can take more time to refresh new artwork. So it could take anything from 24 hours to 14 days for your artwork to update across all your listings. Unfortunately, you will just have to wait it out.

Note: If you’re nervous about it updating, then there are some things you can check. In some rare cases, we’ve found the delay happens because the artwork has a CMYK color profile. Apple Podcasts requires the artwork to be in an RGB color profile. If you have CMYK as your color profile, they will reject it.
