As shown in the screenshot below, I attempted to have tmp jpg coverart, obtained from the itunes websource, overwrite a locally stored artwork file "00. Front.jpg" by clicking the overwrite option. However, when I checked the directory, the old (smaller resolution) artwork file remained there. I also made sure that the local artwork wasn't read only or protected.
I tried checking the tickbox underneath the album art when clicking overwrite, but that only embedded the album art into the file (local album art remained unchanged) and something I generally avoid because I don't embed albumart in my files personally.
I also tried placing album art from a different album as "00. Front.jpg" in the local directory and saw the same result: the locally stored album art remained and was not overwritten despite selecting the option to overwrite it.
This function worked fine in v3.12 and every version before that as far I can remember.
Steps to reproduce:
Look up album using any websource that pulls album art.
Select "overwrite" when presented with the notification window shown in the picture below.
I noticed something after updating to 3.14: When using "Save image to disc", it is indeed replacing the existing artwork as it did before.
However, when I choose "Extract Cover" and then manually select the file to replace (see screenshot), it is not replacing it even after I confirm it. In fact, even when I try to save any artwork via "Extract Cover", it is not writing any file at all on the disc. Can someone confirm this behaviour?
Thanks Florian. I just wanted to add that v3.14a release fixed the first regression described by the other "extract cover" does not result in the found album artwork writing to the folder. Also, v3.14a fixed a second regression that I encountered where no album artwork is written to the the album folder when "save image to disc" is selected and no cover art (specified by filename) is found in said folder. Looking back, it seems that these two regressions are maybe one of the same.
