Photo or Logo is not a correct description of what may be potentially a
work of art eg, Sergeant Peppers lonely hearts club album image, by the
Beatles which was created by Robert Fraser [1]
and the Fallen Angels ' Fallen Angels '[2] album cover which is an
original work of art, which is a 48" x 48" oil on board which has a
selling price of around £2000 created by KNOX

Many album images are artistic impressions or summaries of the music its
self eg, The Bat out of Hell album cover by Meat Loaf [3]

I feel also that image-summary would fit in with both hImage and hVideo
