Album Art Image Quality

Recommended Posts

Poweramp uses 512x152 and 1024x1024 (HD) textures, and downloads images up to 1024x1024 (normal) and 2048x2048 (hi-res). All the options are available in settings / Album Art, but if you have device with limited per-app memory settings, low-res screen, or older Androids (5/6), you better avoid enabling HD / 24bit album art as it will waste memory and push other images out of cache.

Btw 3kx3k will take (if Poweramp would not downscale them) 72mb (3000x3000x4 and finally x2 - don't ask - because this is Android:-) ) in RAM.  On some devices Poweramp is limited to 192-256mb.

I agree that 3000x3000 is probably wildly excessive, that must be making the file sizes a lot larger than necessary for no practical advantage that I can think of. Cover images are mostly used for thumbnails or displayed no wider than about 4 inches even on a large phone, or 6 or 7 inches on a tablet. Even on a large PC screen, 3000 pixel images are not necessary nor displayable.

I Used to have large artworks embedded in my music too, but found this useful website:

Just upload your artwork and select scale image and scale it to 600x600 or whatever you like,It doesn't reduce quality at all, also you can edit your artwork, I always saturate colors a bit, brighten the darker ones etc... But that's up to you.
