Erm thanks but where does this give me the setting to import author and title from filename and import the remaining tags / cover art from the file?
You can only do one of these at a time. In the preference section mentioned above uncheck the box to Read metadata from file contents rather than file name and your author and title will be set via the file name when you add them to calibre.

Now you can select a book and open the Edit Metadata window. Here you can select a format in the formats section and click on either of two icons to the left of the formats section to extract the cover from the book or use the metadata from the book (all metadata doesn't discriminate between fields).
