Recently I discovered a way to get quality covers for digital releases –which are not on Bandcamp as Bandcamp already provides large images. I created this small tutorial because it's not completely simple.

Step 1 (skippable if you already have the link to the release's iTunes page)
Using the iTunes desktop app:
Right-click on the release

Then paste it on a web browser (I used Chrome for this)

Step 2
On a web browser (Chrome):
Inspect the image.

Step 3
Right-click and select Edit as HTML to get the desired file link.

Step 4
Select and copy the image url with desired resolution, like so:

Step 5
Open the link on a browser and here's your high resolution digital album cover.

Step 6
Compress the image, using a tool such as https://www.imagesmaller.com/
There's another tutorial here on how to do that, so perhaps there are better ways to do this step there.

It must be noted that, with the way covers are shown on MA, perhaps it's simpler to use the covers one can find on Amazon.

I hope this helped. If it doesn't delete this or something please.
