SoundCloud sets itself apart as the world’s leading social sound platform where you can listen to, create and curate music. It gives musicians who are just starting out a platform to share their music with the rest of the world and for listeners to discover new gems and follow their favorite artists. Whether you’re creating or curating music, make sure followers and would-be followers can recognize you by creating eye-catching profile with the best possible profile image and art.

Profile photo

Make sure fans or future followers can easily relate the music you share to you or your band by adding a proper and good quality profile image. Upload your band logo, or, if you’re a solo artist, add in a creative shot of you. Take note that your SoundCloud profile image will be cropped in a round shape and the recommended size for the best image quality is 1000 x 1000 pixels. Once you’ve uploaded your image, you have the option to drag the image left or right or to zoom in for the perfect photo composition.

Profile header

Your SoundCloud header acts a cover or hero image over your SoundCloud profile page. It’s a great real estate for adding more band art or artist photos or to highlight a song or album art. For the best header image quality, use either a JPEG or PNG image with a dimension of at least 2480 pixels wide by 520 pixels tall. It’s also better to avoid adding text to your header image as they might be cropped on smaller screens.
