Where is the cover images are stored?

Hello all,

where is the cover images from books are stored? I thought that would be somewhere in metadata.db, but apparently it's not the case.

Cheers,
Andrew

The covers for all of my books are in the individual book folder with the name cover.jpg. Since I have also converted every one of my books to epub the covers are also embedded inside each epub book.

Yep, discovered this about 3 seconds after I posted. Thank you for confirming.

I just wrote a script that pulls the first page from every djvu file and saves it as cover.jpg next to the file and ran it on my djvu calibre library, worked like a treat - now I have nice covers for all the djvu books I have.
