Re-download all my covers

Is there any way to have Calibre re-download all my covers? I know that there are quest a few covers that are really low resolution and rather than having to wade through my entire library to find each, I was wondering if I could just have Calibre automatically download them all again.

Select all your books, right-click on the selection, go into the edit metadata submenu and select download covers.

You can do that as described but it would most likely grab some low resolution covers along the way. Automatically downloading covers is no insurance of quality. You would end up having to wade through your covers anyways.

I go to Google Images, search the book, save the cover and browse to it in calibre (edit metadata individually). It's usually faster that way.

I too do this. I use the Search the Internet GUI plugin. This allows me to right click on the book (see attached) and go straight to the google images page for that book.
