Can I change the setting somewhere so that it automatically embeds instead of having to click that checkbox every time?

Yes. Make sure embedded is selected as the artwork storage option in Tags (1) preferences. https://musicbee.fandom.com/wiki/Tags_Preferences

You may also want to move Embedded to the top of the list for artwork display.

If you don't want the popup to display at all, you can untick "confirm picture storage options when adding artwork" in General Preferences, but beware that in that case, it will also take the first artwork it finds rather than letting you choose between sources.

Yes I have that option checked, but every time I search for, or copy and paste an image I need to check the embed box.

you ticked the "embed picture in the music file" option on the left side of the Tags(1)\artwork settings?

What version of MB are you using? (Help > About)
How was MB installed? (Store, Installer, Portable)

Please post a screenshot of your Tags (1) settings.

Is this happening for all files, or just specific ones? If specific files, are they be marked Read-Only?

What format are the files?

the only thing i can think of is if you are editing files on a device then the device sync settings would be used for how the default artwork is stored

Yeah, if the files already have artwork then it defaults to the original storage method.

As phred said, screenshots might be helpful to show us your settings and process.
