2. Add a Background Image

This will open up the Podcast Cover Art Maker. To customise your template, first select a background. There are a number of great images you can choose from the template. You can also search for a specific image to go with your podcast theme in the search bar. Or you can upload your own image from your computer by clicking the Custom image button.

4. Change the Text

Now let's move over to the left side of the template and update the text by entering the name of the podcast and the presenter. In this area, you can also find the best font for your podcast cover art and change the colour of the text. You also have the option of adding additional text here and uploading your own logo if you have one.
