New, here… been tearin’ it up entering on a good number of new releases as well as adding/editing info on existing releases.
It came up yesterday that I may have improperly uploaded artwork from a digital release and added it to a physical CD release.
I have been using iTunes’ high-resolution digital artwork in a number of instances where the artwork is the same as the physical release, for believing it a superior image to any scan or potential scan.
In review, another use called me out on it and said that I should not use digital artwork if the release is a physical one. Admittedly, I went toe-to-toe and debated that per any rule I am aware of, so far, there is no straight, clear-cut guideline precluding the use of digital artwork over scans for a physical release, and that it seemed to boil down to a fundamental philosophy or preference that a scan always be used over a digital artwork for physical releases.
