Beta Artwork Beef - automatically add extended artwork
Edit: @MB1968 When Artwork Beef is first installed, everything is new to it and must be processed - some artwork in the file system isn't added to Kodi's database with any/many other tools. It should identify local artwork first, and should not replace any artwork in the database automatically, nor the file. It may fill in a few missing artwork, and the final count also includes local artwork that has been updated as well as downloaded artwork; the artwork report (view it at the bottom of the add-on settings "General") should tell you "downloaded" (items updated from web services) count vs "updated" (downloaded + local artwork not already in the database). If it is actually replacing all files, post a debug log, the artwork report (can be found at userdata/addon_data/script.artwork.beef/artwork-report.txt), and an example of a movie file structure including the names of all artwork and the file modified dates; I'll need to look into that further.

If you just want to scan in local artwork for the first run, enable "Automatically add from file system only" and run it again. It's still going to do the same process, just faster because it won't check the web services. Disable it again once the process has completed if you want it to add artwork from web services for new items going forward.
