COVER ART SUBMISSION REQUIRMENTS
1. Please check the appropriate page to be sure we don't already have the cover you are submitting.

2. If you find a quality image of a cover online, simply send us the link.

3. We prefer .png format at a size no larger than 1000X1000 pixels. We will accept other formats/sizes and do the conversion on our side if you don't have the ability to convert or resize.

4. For digipak covers or cassette covers that aren't perfectly square, resize them down so the longest side is 1000 pixels. Please don't up-size smaller images to 1000. Just send us the largest version you have up to 1000 on the longest side. It is fine to include the flap on cassette J-cards or send us a shot of the back side of an LP or CD.

5. When using a scanner, set the dots per inch to a higher setting like 600, then resize the resulting image down to 1000 pixels on the longest side.

6. When using a camera, be sure the resolution is at least 12 megapixels, and note the following hints:
A. When the sides appear to be curved in your photo, increase the distance between your camera and the cover art and try again.
B. Don't use uneven overhead household lighting. Ambient daylight usually gives much better results. On a sunny day with plenty of ambient light coming in from a window, turn off the interior house lights, lay the cover art on a flat surface in front of the window, and square up the camera directly above. You can also get excellent results outside on a porch or in a garage...anywhere there's indirect sunlight.
C. When using a smartphone camera, again, be sure the camera is at least 12 megapixels! Also, be sure to clean the lens first, as smartphone camera lenses almost always need cleaning before every use.

Your contributions are appreciated!!
