Muzooka artist image guidelines

File size and type

Artist images are shared across many platforms, including large displays and televisions. As such, we recommend uploading images that are appropriate for 4K screens (4096 x 2160 pixels).

Minimum image Size: 2048 x 1024 pixels

File types: JPG or PNG

Content

Your artist image should be a high-quality head shot or group shot. It must be safe for all ages (no nudity) and free of text (no logos, tour dates, watermarks, etc).

Multiple aspect ratios and auto-cropping tips

Muzooka automatically generates four different aspect ratios from one image: 

1:1, 4:3, 16:9, 21:9

Uploading a square image with ample background showing around the artist or band is the best way to ensure that our system auto-crops the photo properly. If the artist or band is not properly centered in the photo, use the "Set Focal Point" feature to adjust for a better crop.

What to Avoid

Do not use blurry or low resolution images (do not upscale a low-res image).

Do not use a photo with borders, they will not look good after auto-cropping.

Avoid photos containing typography, branding, advertisements or watermarks.

Quality Reviews

Your photo will be subject to review if our system flags it for inappropriate content or excessive text or branding.

  • Safe / Not Safe: If your image is flagged by an admin as not safe, it will not be available to our partners and you will be required to upload a different photo.
  • Text / Branding: If your image is flagged for text/branding, it will be available to our downstream partners but we will request that you upload a new photo that meets the above guidelines.
