Album Cover Art super blurry/low quality

Album Cover Art super blurry/low quality

This has been an issue for a while and it seems many others are having the same issue, yet it isn't being fixed. This happens when you large out the album cover on Spotify Windows. This happens with *every* album art, not just some. Internet connection is perfectly fine yet all the album covers are blurry and super low quality. I provided two different album covers, you can clearly see how they are blurry compared to the quality they should be. PLEASE fix this asap.

Hi @ItsModern,

 

Thank you for posting your question on the Community.

 

We're aware of this happening on the desktop app. However, take into consideration that images used as album art in Spotify require 640x640px minimum, so some images with low quality may appear blurred to screens with higher resolutions. 

 

In any case, we appreciate you taking the time to send this report. We also invite you to share it in this thread where the new desktop design is being discussed. We regularly monitor it and pass on your thoughts to the relevant team.

 

If you have any questions, the Community is here for you.

This issue should now be fixed in version 1.1.76

 

The blurry (low quality) issue for the album art in the bottom left corner of the desktop app was fixed in version 1.1.75. There was a delay in this version going out over the holidays, but version 1.1.76 that includes this fix is now rolling out to users.

I too have been having this issue with my band's artist page. How do I have our Spotify page keep the high resolution of the photos?

Hey @mikeyziegler 

 

I checked out your artist page and I see what you mean. To me it looks like the header photo has a higher quality than the "about" image at the bottom.

 

From my experience uploading photos to my artist page over the years, Spotify compresses the photos in the "about" section more than the banner or profile picture. I think that's just the way it currently is.

I have this issue 24/7. The album cover is always blurred. Sucks when I want to look at the cover.
