EAC: Add cover art from scanned file (jpg)
I am able to retrieve cover art from some online provider (not sure from where) but I can't find art for some of my CDs. If I right click on the cover art area I get three options: Remove Cover Image, Save Cover Image to File, Get New Image From Metadata Provider. But there is no option to add from file such as a scanned image. Could someone tell me where to find this option.

I believe it is possible to add an image because I saw it mentioned on another post here:

I found the answer. Simply dragging and dropping an image file into the cover art area seems to work.

I hadn't thought of that. Useful to know.

I hadn't thought of that either. Worth knowing. Whichever lookup service I have selected in EAC retrieved a very small image last time I ripped a disc, which looked a bit cruddy in Foobar, so I manually (once a year!) tagged a better image with Foobar's context menu. But that's a bit of a faff, as it doesn't automatically look in the folder where the audio files are saved. The Pono Music software does this, but I tend to do all my metadata editing in Foobar.
