A playlist cover image is essential for your Spotify playlist. Not only can a great image add to the aesthetic of your playlist, but it can increase the likelihood of your Spotify playlist gaining followers.
This is because not all playlists have engaging images as their playlist cover. So when you add a great playlist cover image, you are more likely to stand out in Spotify's search results. Spotify playlists without a playlist cover will default to show the album art of the top four songs in the playlist.
Ok, well we know it's important have a Spotify playlist cover, but what is the easiest way to get good playlist images for your playlists?
In this article, we will have royalty-free downloadable images you can add to your Spotify playlists, or you can even request custom playlist covers for a specific vibe, mood, or genre!

What is the best Spotify Playlist Cover Size?
Across most of the internet, it seems the best Spotify playlist cover size is 300 x 300 pixels, which is a 1:1 ratio. However, as long as the playlist cover image is a square with equal proportion, then the photos you upload should be sufficient. We tend to use pictures that are 500 x 500, so there is no one correct size, only a correct ratio.
How do I make an aesthetic playlist?
First, think about a specific genre of music (ex. pop songs, rock music, etc.). Then narrow down the genre to a specific vibe (slow tempo, happy, sad, etc.) The more niche, the better.
How do I add an image to the aesthetic Spotify playlist?
