I guess this will really lead to upscaled images. Because often it's impossible to find album cover in 500+ resolution.

For example:
http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Abonos/Abonos/67269

I guess allowing 500x500 is better because it will be possible (?) to detect covers with medium quality in database and report them. While it's unlikely possible to detect upscaled images.

And it's surely better to have at least any image for album cover than no image at all.

But of course it's up to you to decide :)

BTW, is it better to upload images in higher resolution (for example, 1000x1000) if found or to downscale them to 700x700?

It doesn't matter really. All Images will be downscaled eventually to 700 pixels. I do this in batch every couple of months.

It saves our bandwidth bill and makes it quicker to download for users.

Even after resizing to 700x700 , I cannot seem to upload any artwork. Is there a problem?
