Changing playlist picture?

Is there a way to change the cover of a playlist on desktop? I've looked it up, and everybody is saying that you need to click on the cover picture, but nothing happens when I left-click, and right-clicking only brings up radio, making the playlist secret, and stuff like that. It doesn't seem to work on mobile, either.

Hey hammyblast, welcome to the Community!

 

Are you sure you're not trying to edit a playlist that isn't owned by you? Only your playlists or collaborative playlists are editable. If you're still having the same issue on your playlists, try right clicking on the playlist image and clicking "Edit Details".

If that still doesn't work, would you mind attaching a screenshot of the problem in your next post?

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply! The playlist is my own, and just to be fully sure, I just created a new playlist to double check. There's no "Edit Details" option. I've included a picture of what shows up when I right click on the cover, as nothing happens when I left click.

Hammyblast,

Thanks for the quick response!

The webplayer currently does not support changing the picture of a playlist, unfortunately. The Spotify Desktop app does, however, and you can download it here.

Hope this helps!

I am using the Desktop APP, and I can't change the pic, either! SOOOOOO Annoying!

Hey @VaughanB

 

That's strange!

 

If you're using the desktop Spotify (that you've downloaded), you should be able to edit the playlists you created.

 

Open one of your playlists. Place your cursor on the playlist cover and a pencil shape should appear on the image. Click on it.

A smaller window appears for editing playlist details (image, name, description).
You can also reach this window by clicking the button with three dots next to Play, and selecting 'Edit Details',

Right-clicking on a playlist in the playlist menu (left bar) lets you also select 'Edit Details'.

 

Note: The picture must be .jpeg and should not exceed 4MB in size.

 

If you can't do that, then I suggest reinstalling Spotify. Sometimes programs need refreshing. :)

Try this:

1. Close Spotify and uninstall it.

2. Go to %AppData% in the file explorer, and delete any Spotify folders you find in Local and Roaming.

3. Restart your computer.

4. Now you can reinstall Spotify.

 

 

Let me know what happens! :)

I think you either have to be part of the rockstar program or it is unavailible at this time to do that

Hi,

 

I'm pretty sure you can't actually change the profile picture on the windows desktop app :/ however as you can see from the above screenshot it is easy to do so on the mac app; I have both and predominantly use the mac app and I don't recall seeing the edit details button on windows. Sorry about that, they really should add that feature!

I'm not part of the Rockstar Program but I still have the ability to edit my playlists' picture. I'm using the Spotify app by the way.

Is this on mac?

 

Changing the playlist picture definitely isn't a rockstar program benefit, anyone can do it but I believe it is currently only possible to do so on the mac app.
