Not sure about correct behavior and best solution. If this is not done for all tracks with the same linked artwork (so it cannot be removed), it will lead to artwork duplication (one from tag and second from the folder). Maybe only add function to "Edit tags", which will move the artwork automatically for all affected tracks, not just for selected one.

Test Note: If User remove Linked artwork from file MM already asks if user wants to delete linked image and prevent re adding it back on scan.

I think that conversion Linked to Tag should auto select tag for the rest of album tracks.

Best would be to at least partially support functions and behavior from Trixmoto "Album Art Tagger 5.2" script

Maybe the simplest method of achieving this would be in a manner similar to how unsynchronized tags work. i.e.:

1) In Files to edit, include a queries for:
a) Unsaved artwork: Artwork that has been looked up, but isn't saved
b) Incorrectly saved artwork: Artwork that has been saved, but not as specified in Artwork settings
c) Multiple artwork images: Tracks containing multiple images (this is a separate issue, but related so I've included it here for users who want to only have 1 image per track)

2) a)/b) Add Tools > Edit tags > Update artwork...
This will save / update the artwork of the selected files so that it matches the format configured in your library settings. Are you sure you want to proceed?

c) To deal with tracks with multiple images, the user can just right-click Properties > Artwork for any such tracks

Pushed to later version. as this could be quite dangerous change, which will need more testing.
Btw. I would go with 2)a)b), only I would create dialog for choosing, which action should be done, so user can save to tags/files/both without need of searching related option (default selection will be the one from Options). This way user will also clearly see, what action will be done.
