An image embedded in an MP3 is typically is the ID3v2 tag, under [APIC]. The data is available in the returned structure, and it's raw binary data, it can be written to a file or echoed to the browser (with an appropriate Content-type: header).

Could you please show us some code that does this.

$picture = $ThisFileInfo['id3v2']['APIC'][0]['data'];

That code above will not pull anything.
