Export album artwork as folder.jpg to Album folder

OS X 10.8 or later only. This script will export the artwork of the selected tracks or tracks in the selected playlist as a JPEG image file named folder.jpg to the folder which contains each selected track's file--presumably the track's Album folder. Many third-party music players and systems (Sonos, for example) may look for a "folder.jpg" here to use as display artwork. If multiple album tracks are selected, the script will make sure only one image file per Album is exported.

Based on Save Album Art to Album Folder.

Action shot:

Save Album Art as folder.jpg in action

The main settings for the script. My understanding is that other common filenames include "cover.jpg" and "album.jpg".
