Many social media platforms have an option for album cover art. It’s a sure-fire way to attract attention to your music. Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr all have galleries that you can use to create some awesome album cover art for your album. If you’re using Facebook, it’s fairly simple to create album cover art with the help of the Art Director for Facebook.
However, before you can use any of these galleries, you’ll need to get a Facebook artist page.
To set up a Facebook artist page, head to Facebook and log in to your existing account. Once you’re logged in, click the Facebook Artist section in the left-hand navigation menu on the homepage. Click “Get Started” at the bottom of the page, and follow the instructions to create your own artist page. Once you’re done, you can go back to your profile page and click “Edit Profile” at the top of the page. Click the down arrow next to “Artist,” and click the “Create Artist” button at the bottom of the page. A menu will appear in the bottom right of the page. Click the “Upload” button under the name of your artist page and select “New Artist” from the dropdown list. You can now click “Submit” to complete the process.
Once you’ve created a Facebook artist page, you can create your own album art. Here’s how:
First, head to the Facebook Artist Dashboard by clicking on the “Artwork” tab on your profile page. Under “Gallery,” click “Album Cover Art” and browse through your photos. If you have any that you want to use as album covers, you can paste the link into the album cover tag box on the left. If not, you can click “Upload Your Own.”
Now it’s time to edit your art. Click on the “File” tab to open the “Artwork” section. Click the “Edit Cover Art” button to bring up the album cover screen, which can be accessed from the “Artwork” section of your profile page. You can edit the cover of your album, or you can use the same cover to create an entirely new album cover.
When you are ready to change your album art, select the cover that you want to change and select the thumbnail from the album cover tag. You can also choose to use a different album cover from your album or select a different album cover. Select the thumbnail and hit the “Enter” button.
After you click “Enter,” you will be taken to the album art editing screen. You can change any settings here. Then, click “Upload” to complete the process.
Once you’ve completed the editing process, you can either put your album art on a new page or upload it to Facebook’s album cover gallery. Either way, you need to tell Facebook which album you’ve created this cover for. To do this, head to your “Artwork” section of the Facebook Artist Dashboard and click on the “Add Album” button at the top of the page. You’ll be taken to the album cover editing page. You can change any settings on this page.
Now, click the “New Album” button. This will take you to the album art gallery. You can also upload your album art to Facebook’s album cover gallery page, but you’ll need to know the album title first. Once you’ve decided on the album title, click “Create.”
You’ll see a window pop up. Under the “Home” section, click “Existing Album Cover Art” and browse through your photos. Once you’ve selected a photo, click the “Make Update” button to update the cover of the album with your new cover. You can also upload the new cover to Facebook’s album cover gallery page. Once you’ve uploaded it, click “Submit” to complete the process.
Once you’ve uploaded your cover art to the album cover gallery, Facebook will show you a page that says, “Your Album Cover Gallery: edit album cover art.” Click on that link and you’ll be taken to the album cover gallery.
Here, you can delete the album art that you’ve already uploaded, or upload a new album cover.
