Step 8: Stop, Drop, and Crop

Shrinking photos you want to use as podcast art down to iPod-friendly postage-stamp size doesn't require launching iPhoto. Just double-click any piece of artwork in the Track Editor (including the Episode Artwork and Podcast Preview images) to load that image into GarageBand's Artwork Editor; use the slider to scale the image, and then drag the image to adjust what appears in the visible center of the crop frame.



Who says that size doesn't matter?


BONUS TIP: No iLife? No Problem!
