Spotify is an excellent app for us to stream music online. It has a large music catalog in its music library and offers us different kinds of subscription plans. There are still some of the drawbacks Spotify has. Some people report that it’s knotty to change album cover on Spotify and other people still don’t know how to do it. This is one of the shortcomings when using Spotify, I have to admit it. And I’m going to explain how to change the Spotify album cover and Spotify playlist picture as well. If you’re interested in this topic, then read below at once.


Part 1. How to Get Spotify Album Cover

Many of you may wonder how to see and get the album cover on Spotify. I have to tell you that you cannot directly download the album cover art from the Spotify app or web player. The only possible way to get the cover is to take a screenshot. We suggest you catch the screenshot on the desktop for a better image. The images shown on the mobile phones are just too blurry to see clearly. Now you can follow the below steps to get the album cover from a full screenshot.

1. Launch the Spotify app on your computer and select a song to play.

2. Click the arrows at the bottom right of the app.

3. Press the Windows icon + Shift + S to start a screenshot on a Windows system, or press Shift + Command + 3 on Mac.

4. Select the whole album cover in the screenshot area.


Part 2. How Can I Change Spotify Playlist Picture

We can change the Spotify playlist picture if the playlist was created by ourselves. Generally, by default, Spotify chooses the album covers from the first four songs in the playlist to create a playlist picture. To change it, you can rearrange the order of the songs in this playlist or just upload a new photo to change the image. Here’s the how-to guide:

1. Launch the Spotify app and tap Your Library.

2. Select a playlist you created and tap the three-dot icon above the list of your song.

3. Tap Edit from the drop-down options list.

4. Here you can change the song order in your playlist by tapping and holding the three horizontal bars next to a song. Then you can drag your song to change its place. When you finished, tap Save to set up.

5. The other way is to upload a new photo to change the cover, just click Change Image under the cover and then tap Choose from the library or Take Photo. Now you can upload pictures as your Spotify playlist cover according to your taste.

The procedure on Android devices is similar, you can also follow the steps above to change Spotify playlist cover on your Android devices.
