add cover to epub

Bug Description

I convert a file (usually a pdf) to epub. Most won't have a proper cover, I add a cover. When I upload to google play books, the cover is not displayed. Yet when I edit in Sigil, and I add the same picture as cover, it works. I think there is some incompatibility issue with your titlepage and google books, that it doesn't recognize it as a cover.

3.44 64 bit, windows 10

Sorry I cannot repicate. Steps I tried:

1) Add a PDF file to calibre
2) Set its cover to some image
3) Convert to EPUB
4) Upload EPUB to google play books
5) Cover is visible

 status invalid

Changed in calibre:
status: New → Invalid

Oh and my test was with EPUB 2 output (see the EPUB output section of
the conversion dialog)
