Yes, because it is always immediately followed by the uncut cover front; and since the uncut cover front of a CD most often is 1 of 2 booklet cover pages, a ‘Front only’ would otherwise have to be added (or, instead, a similar automated preview). I understand your objection and the notion of Front not including the folded pseudo-Back of that spread, and am happy to comply with whatever MB principle-in-practice I am still trying to pick up on. (In this particular case, one could counter-argue with the auto-link for Amazon pictures, then in both directions with Guideline completeness.) The cut (about 20 px at 600 dpi) is done to just excise visible staples and even out edges, as the paper is often not cut in right angles and seldom print aligned. The cut Front is also made from the full booklet cover spread image, identical dust pattern and all for anyone to check. Every scan other than the cut Front thus annotated have their source edges visible.
I also scan in greyscale (exceptionally even black/white for text only) pages that have no colour, fully aware that an other may think something vital is missing.
I also have a bad scanner, poor image correction ability (colour, dust, pen writing; and other practical realities subject to user/temper rule) and little time.
Trying not to sound sarcastic, I will hence go for uncut Front. No problem.
No mistake then. Thanks.
