3. Play with Some Images for an Eye-Catching Effect in Your Album Cover

Now it’s time to get visual with some images. Musicians commonly utilise photography, especially of the band or primary artist, but almost anything is possible, from abstract graphics to drawings and collages.

1. Add your own images. Navigate to images/add.
2. Browse our image library. Find new royalty free textures, images, and graphics to insert onto your album cover. You can browse thumbnails or use the search function.
3. Adjust your images. Drag, tilt, and resize the images you chose for your template.

4. Insert an Icon or Graphic into Your Album Cover

Icons can really bring some depth to an album.

1. Browse for icons. Browse our library of royalty-free icons via the Icons button. Under Stock, browse icons by thumbnail or via keyword search.
2. Choose and customise your icon. Select an icon to insert it into your draft and change the position and size of the icon. You can also change the colour of the stock icon by selecting Fill Colour.
3. Upload your own icons. Upload PNG icon files via the Images tab. Note: You can’t change the colour of these icons once inserted into your project.

With a Premium account, you can upload icons in SVG format. The colour of SVG images can be changed within the platform.
