New Feature Suggestion: DRAG & DROP Covers

Let's imagine I have the covers explorer opened in Calibre.

And let's imagine after downloading the Metadata I cannot find the cover of my book (thing that happens normally when you are in other languages in which the covers are not widely distributed, for example, spanish).

What I would like is, after searching the cover in Google

Drag it to Calibre
Drop it in Calibre
and bingo
I have the cover placed properly in the book
Drag and Drop covers

I think this feature would be great to incorporate in new versions

Agreed, and it works very well. The bit that caught me out initially was that you have to drop the new cover right on top of the existing cover that is already showing, not just in that general area.

Hi,

I also use the drag and drop for covers which works well but when saving and then viewing, it shows 2 different covers...
