Error when using "Image URL" for iTunes within Screencast.

Why don't images stored on Screencast upload?

I want to use Screencast to post podcasts. I also want to use Screencast to host the image for the podcast. However, when I try to Validate with iTunes it throws an error on the image.

It seems to need 3 things. 
1. It says it's got to be between 1400 x 1400 pixels and 3000 x 3000 pixels --- it is!

2. The image URL must end in “.jpg”, “.jpeg” or “.png” ---The image uploaded was a JPG. I also loaded a PNG file. Neither worked.

3. It also said something the "server hosting the image must allow HTTP HEAD requests"

Perhaps #3 is the issue?

Does Screencast support HTTP HEAD requests? 

Do I need to share the image a different way to allow a HTTP HEAD request?

Thanks in advance.

Screencast should have no problem with the HTTP HEAD requests. I'm curious what URL you are providing to iTunes.

A link to the view page, such as, will likely not be sufficient because it isn't directly linking to the image.

If you want to get the direct link to the image you can click on the image when you are on the view page and proceed to copy it from your browser's URL bar. An example URL looks something like this:

Let me know if this helps!
