Plugin works fine if only one artwork in file, i.e. FRONT_COVER Image. Add a second image i.e. BACK_COVER Image neither image displays.

I think the default behavior should be to display the first image the plugin finds in the file or the FRONT_COVER image if so labeled.

Thinking ahead, if there are multiple images perhaps a montage could be displayed with the ability to allow the user to choose which image to scale full size (within window constraints), or perhaps to scroll through the images serially (Front, Back, Media Leaflet, A bright colored fish, etc). I'll create a separate enhancement request if needed.
