Question: I Hate My Podcast Icon

Fri, 02 Mar 2007 14:42:38 -0800

How do I change the artwork (the one that gets the nifty reflection effect) associated with a podcast in the Itunes browser from iWeb?

I have a coworker who publishes a podcast through iWeb. I can't find the place in the GUI where I can tell iWeb to associate a different image with the podcast. The instructions seem to refer to dragging an image to a Submit widget, but this widget does not receive image drags.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about and how to fix? I can edit the rss.xml file on the server by hand but it gets changed every time my colleague adds another podcast to the site, and I would like to fix this problem once and for all.

I'm guessing you're on a mac, by your name. I use Windows XP, so I hope this method makes sense and is helpful in some way..

First, find the artwork you want to use. Put it on the clipboard or wherever you "copy and paste" on a Mac. Then, right click on the podcast name, choose "get info", click the checkbox next to artwork, and paste your artwork in there. It overwrites the ID3 tags and I think it should stick when your friend publishes a new podcast.
