I have a bunch of MP3 files that have their album art included within the file itself. I am now looking for a way to extract them to store them separably, at best from command line.

Is there a way to achieve this?

You can use eyed3 which is a great utility for handling id3 tags. To extract all images from an mp3 file you can use:

eyeD3 --write-images=DIR mp3_file

This will write all embedded images from the mp3 file to the specified directory.

I just found out that ffmpeg will do the trick!

ffmpeg -i file.mp3 file.jpg
