There are literally thousands of pre-made music and podcast playlists from Spotify and community users. If you want to create your own playlists, you can further personalize them with custom cover art. We’ll show you how.
Changing the playlist covers can be done using the desktop and mobile Spotify apps. That includes Windows 1
Add custom covers to Spotify playlists on the desktop
First, open the Spotify app on your Windows PC, Mac or on the web. Select one of your personal playlists from the sidebar.
Then move the mouse over the playlist cover and click the pencil icon.
This opens a menu for editing the playlist details. Click on the three-dot menu icon in the corner of the cover and select ‘Replace Image’.
A file explorer window (Finder on Mac) will open and you can select an image from your computer.
Note: Playlist covers must be JPEG files and a maximum file size of 4 MB.
Finally, select “Save” to finish.
You’re done! The custom album art will be displayed on all your devices with the Spotify app installed and visible to those you shared the playlist with.
Add custom covers to Spotify playlists on mobile
First, open the Spotify app on your iPhone, iPad or Android device. Select one of your personal playlists from the “Library” tab.
Then tap the three-dot menu icon to open the playlist settings. The location of this icon varies by platform.
Select ‘Edit’ or ‘Edit Playlist’.
Under the cover of the playlist, tap Change Image.
You have the option to select an image from your device gallery or take a new photo.
After selecting an image, Spotify lets you crop it into a square. Tap “Choose” when you’re done.
Tap “Save” to complete your changes.
That is it! Now you can easily customize your playlists and make them look a bit more refined.
