There's an open bug on this already, but nobody's working on it right

It already does this, it looks in the album directory for an image 
with a filename starting with one of:

IMAGE_NAMES = ["cover", "album", "albumart", ".folder", "folder"]

followed by a standard image suffix, e.g. .jpg, .gif, .png etc.  So it
will match: cover.png, Cover.png, album.jpg, Albumart.gif etc.

If you have the cover in one of the suggested formats in the current
directory it will do what you expect, and only if it can't find that
filename it will look on the net.  There is open bug with a patch that
adds support for a "cover manager" which will allow the user to
specifically choose which file to use as cover art and allow the user
to select from multiple matches on Amazon:

Hope this helps.
