We’re making some changes to our Music Manager service over the coming months. To find out how this affects you, please see our full announcement.
Music Manager Help: Uploading Images
If your question is not answered below you can also check the Artist and Label Forum to find help.

What are the guidelines for artist images?
Your images should be actual images of the artist. In the case of "virtual groups" or bands that appear in movies/TV shows, the “characters” may be shown. Album covers must not be used.
Logos are discouraged as artist images. In the case of genuine artist images being unavailable, logos may be used instead.
It is preferable that images contain no nudity or sexually explicit content.
In cases in which there are more than one artist using a name, we ask that you refrain from uploading images via the Music Manager, and instead do so from the artist's page on the main last.fm site.
What are the guidelines for album images?
The image should be the actual cover art for the album. The image itself should preferably be no less than 300 x 300px and must be square.
If the album has multiple artwork, use the correct one for the tracklisting and title you have uploaded.
What are the guidelines for label images?
This image should be your label's actual logo, preferably on a white background. If your label has had multiple logos please use the current version.
Why does my artist have images I didn't upload? What's this voting system?
Whilst you can upload an official image for your artist, in keeping with the user-generated nature of Last.fm our users can also upload images. This is to help you keep your artist page up to date and to make sure artist pages always have image content.
Official artist and label uploaded images will always take precedence over user uploaded images. User uploaded images are then ordered using a voting system.
If you find an image you feel is inappropriate, or incorrect, you can flag the image. Once an image is flagged, a moderator can delete it if the image is wrong, innapropriate or of poor taste.
How do I change my artist image?
You can edit your artist's image on the relevant artist page in the Music Manager under Manage > Catalogue. You just need to browse for the correct file on your computer, before hitting upload.
