MusicAlbums (otherwise known as Music DVDs and Bluray Music DVDs) are an exception and we will allow normal dvd dimensions for the cover size. Posters are preferred.

Just had a look at this and I think the covers should be large enough to show on a 1080p media center.

750px wide seems about right.

I see the art size is reduced to 700x700 pix, is this absolute or just someway to reduse the server space? I make a tons of fanart.tv pics and try to use those rules and high quality (on singles here on TADB as well). It's not a "huge" job to reduse the album art from 1000px but it's "just another job i have to do"... (sometimes i just have to use 500 and 700 pix at the singles as well, but I try to avoid them)

Yeh our bandwidth was getting excessive. Like 12GB a day excessive :)

You can still upload 1000x1000 if you want, its just we recommend 700x700 now.

I can always batch downsize them in the future so there is no need to resize yourself. I'll consider this if our bandwidth bill gets too big.

Artist images should be 700x700 now.

Much prefer that as its about twice as fast to download that 1000x1000 and the image quality is still excellent :ugeek:

1920 x 720 doesn't work ............... 1920 x 1080 works for fanart. Couldn't get anything to upload at 1920 x 720.

720p is 1280x720
1080p is 1920x1080

Both of those should work

Today I started enforcing Album uploads at 700x700 pixels.

We were getting far too many crap quality uploads.

You can theoretically upscale them to this resolution but its a much better idea to find a good quality version of the cover and upload that instead of making shortcuts.
