Bug Description

Penguin/RandomHouse let you download high resolution images for books, but these are now in TIFF format, making them incompatible with calibre's "drag and drop" feature for adding covers to a book. Would you please add support for TIFF files?

Steps:
1. Open Windows Explorer to the folder with your TIFF image.
2. Open the Edit Metadata window in calibre for any book.
3. Try to drag the TIFF picture into the cover area of the Metadata window. (You can't.)

Thank you!

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
