Updates to host and guest image specifications

We’ve updated the aspect ratio of host and guest images displayed on show and episode pages. Review the updated requirements below: 

  • 3:4 aspect ratio
  • Size: 1080 x 1440 pixels (width x height)
  • Format: PNG or JPG
  • Fit the entire face of the person within the image
  • Do not crop face, ears, or chin
  • Leave padding between edge of the image and the face
  • The subject should face and look into the camera
  • Use simple, nondistracting backgrounds
  • Avoid typography and logos
  • Avoid other faces in the image background

If your show page displays a Hosts & Guests section and you’d like to update or add images, contact us

Photo submissions for podcast guests must also include a signed photo release

For multiple images, consider including them in a compressed folder or an external link to a file-sharing service. 

As a reminder, this enhancement is only available for selected top shows in English. More podcasts will be added over time. Review and accept the latest Terms of Service in Apple Podcasts Connect for your show to be eligible for these features.
