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.
If you use the Windows version of VLC media player, you can find the album art for all files you played in
by default. One folder per artist, one subfolder for each album.
