Default Steam Edition soundtrack covers

Just wondering, is it okay if I add these when available as a sort of alternate cover?

For example, Quantum Conundrum has the cover art I added, and the store page has its own version. Sometimes this may be the only cover art available.

I just wanted to make sure. Thanks.

yeah, alternate covers for digital releases are fine to upload and add to the image gallery.

Okay, thanks. I won't bother with Quantum Conundrum since they included a separate image as cover art (and it's embedded in the ID3 tags.)

I am not agree to include such images.
If the album was published somewhere else than steam and got a proper cover, there's no use to add the steam "picture".
Like we won't add a reprint entry for a steam soundtrack.

Since it's not going to be the default cover image, but only included for completeness' sakes... and the artwork may not be the same in all stores, I think this should be allowed. Kind of like how some retail stores have exclusive cover artwork or packaging, even if the music / video is the same.

We're already adding notes about where the albums were rereleased (even if the first print was physical), and links to the stores themselves if available - so I don't see a problem with adding this artwork, since it's just additional information.
