Will automatic metadata management also transfer updated cover images to device?

I've got almost 200 books on my calibre libray. I had manually found high resolution covers for them and changed their resolution using the calibre plugin.

However, with the screensavera hack, i found out i need a bigger resolution cover to make it look right fullscreen. I dont mind finding covers again. My question is, do I have to delete all my books and reupload them to update the cover image sizes? Or can I simply just plug in my device with metadate management set to automatic and it'll update the images?

Thanks!

metadata management has no effect for kindles. It only has an effect for devices that have on device databases that can be accessed by calibre, the Kindle is not such a device. You will have to resend.
