      Description

      There are multiple things wrong with "Use the first image type..." cover art option:

      • It applies for all cover art, not only CAA, even if that is implied
      • The behavior is confusing. Without a lengthy description it is not clear at all how this interacts with the image naming string
      • It is also not clear that this only applies to images that are not "front" images
      • It can be completely replicated with a script like " $if($eq(%coverart_maintype%,front),cover,%coverart_maintype%)", which again makes this more confusing

      The resulting behavior is, however, useful. And only relying on a script is not too great for someone just looking for a simple solution. We should  move it to the general Cover Art options and give it a separate label or description.

      Something like placing it directly after the input for "Use the following file name for images" and label the checkbox something like:

      > Always use the primary image type as the file name for non-front images
