Hey guys, can anyone explain to me why I sould use the "Scale large image" feature in the Cover Art Prefrences of XLD ?

If there is coverart, wouldn't I want that at it's maximum size / resolution if I'm not worried about space on my external hard drive... ?

Or is there some other reason I would want to scale down any images?

Some artwork is available in 16 megapixel resolutions and more. For albums with many small tracks the embedded artwork could take more space than the music itself. Some people consider this overkill and for those there is this option.

I never use more space than 120kB per Track myself, which is already quite much. High resolution artwork can be saved in a separate folder. It is needless to multiply it by embedding it into the tracks.
