That would be cool. Did I miss something? I thought calibre MTP wouldn't be available on OS X (which is what I'm on).

Agree. But since Moon+ doesn't (unless I missed an obscure setting option), it'd be nice if CC did, but it would be better if calibre did (including on OS X).

Edit: Yeah, Moon+ pngs are well defined. If filename is Joe Abercrombie - The First Law 02 - Before They Are Hanged.epub, the associated .png files are the same except for appended (no space) _1.png or _2.png as in:

Joe Abercrombie - The First Law 02 - Before They Are Hanged.epub_1.png
Joe Abercrombie - The First Law 02 - Before They Are Hanged.epub_2.png
