Artwork

VIDEO – Upload ARTWORK TO EPISODE

http://sndemo.sermon.net/Tutorials/tutorials/20003018

 

VIDEO – Upload ARTWORK to Podcast / Profile
For Playlist artwork (iTunes Channel art) use 1400×1400.

http://sndemo.sermon.net/Tutorials/tutorials/20227047

 

When you first upload an image, it goes to the “Source Images” directory, where you select a desired size from the drop-down menu options. Then, proceed to crop the image to the selected/desired size. Once it is cropped it will appear under the tab for that size. From there you click/select the image to actually assign it to the location of your choice.

RSS / Podcast Feeds

Each PLAYLIST in your Sermon Studio also includes a Podcast / RSS feed. Go to the PLAYLIST page, select the desired Playlist from the drop down menu… and then scroll down to the RSS/PODCAST section. Highlight & Copy the feed’s URL to your clip-board.

 

You can customize your Podcast / iTunes Channel art within the Artwork section of the Playlist page in your Studio. (note: your image dimensions should be 1400 x 1400. For more information, see the Artwork section above.)  NOTE: updates to your feed may take several days to show within the iTunes Store Directory. However, if you manually subscribe to the feed within iTunes you will see the updates immediately.

 

1. You must have an active Apple ID to submit podcasts to the iTunes Store podcast directory. You may create a new Apple ID if you do not already have one.

– https://appleid.apple.com/#!&page=create

 

2. Sign in to iTunes Podcast Connect.

– https://podcastsconnect.apple.com/

 

Click the iTunes Connect Add podcast button at the top left of the iTunes Connect dashboard.

 

Enter your RSS feed into the provided text box and then click the “Validate” button.

 

A Feed Preview will load if you do not have any validation errors. Please see the Validation Errors section if you have any problems validating your podcast feed.

 

If everything within the Feed Preview is correct, click the “Submit” button.
