Adding a cover to your story

To make your story more enticing for other users and give it a personal touch, consider adding a cover!

You have the option to select images from your phone or computer, or you can design a cover using Canva or the Desygner app

It's worth noting that images should be in png, jpg, or jpeg format. Keep in mind that the default cover image resolution is 512x800. Using high-resolution images might result in blurriness, particularly on displays with higher resolutions. This could be why your story cover appears unclear.

Furthermore, for optimal performance on our platform, we currently apply compression to covers after they're uploaded. This compression can slightly reduce cover quality, which is most noticeable for covers with solid colors or darker shades like blues, greens, and reds.

We're actively exploring ways to enhance cover quality without compromising platform performance. Unfortunately, for the time being, there isn't a workaround available as this is an inherent aspect of our platform's structure.
