Just create a folder inside your moviefolder and place thumbs**.jpg there

Personally I use EMM-R (Ember Media Manager) [Windows only]
There's no program development anymore however there are some new scraper which you can install.
It can scrape almost anything: nfo, fanrt,trailer link, extrathumb,poster, metadata.
In your case you could use it to only scrape extrathumbs.

Here's the thread:

And there's also UMM [multiplatform]

No experience with this one.

And there are so many more.
