Uploading Artworks and Tracks

OK. Now we're going to have a look at the next page which is all about artwork. So your artwork, it needs to either be 3000 by 3000 pixels which is preferred or 1400 by 1400. You can have uh PNG GIF JPEG or JPEG file types. PNG is most preferred because it is uncompressed. However, I'm actually going to upload a JPEG file which might compress the image slightly, but it's still gonna be fine. Then we can choose between and 300 DP I obviously 300 is the best and there's a few other things as well. Obviously don't have a website URL or have any pricing or have anything offensive. And that's basically it. So I'm just going to actually upload the artwork. You can either upload or mail in. I'm just going to upload a file from my computer and hit browse your files and now I'm going to upload the image. I've actually got two versions. A PNG and A JPEG.

It says here you can upload MP threes that meet the same specification, but it isn't recommended because the MP threes will compress your file and it won't sound as high quality as if you use a uncompressed file like a WAF. OK. So all you need to do now is go through and upload all of your audio files. So remember they need to be 44.1 Kertz sample rate and 16 bits and the wealth and then just upload. And once you've done all that hit save and continue.
