Summary0016604: Album Artwork: Improved handling of invalid and non-readable Album Art
DescriptionIt is possible to add corrupted image and/or invalid format if renamed to picture extension. As MM do not check for image format or if image is viewable/correct.

1. MM5 should check if Image is correct and not add it if not.

2. such added images show default Album art image and Lookup is not triggered even for user tracks looks like they are without album art

3. We should visually show that there is a problem with image and user attention is needed (eg. crossed red circle) that would allow user to delete it

4. Maybe we should add somehow to make possible to list such tracks in Files to edit as current options are slow and not assuring in accuracy (eg. meant for "Inconsistent Artwork" feature) and be able to mass fix them.
Steps To Reproduce1. Rename any file to JPG
2. Drag and drop to file to Preview
3. Add Album art dialog shows (expected to get dialog this is not valid image file)
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build

Seems to be quite a corner case to me, not sure if it even needs to be addressed in MM UI.

I tend to agree as MM lack basic Image manipulation 0016246 which include file check if added file is actual image.
