Ethan,

I not sure that I understand your question but here is a example of how 
to use the routine found in the MasterLibrary:

put  __getThumbs (pfilepath ) into imageArray
if imageArray is not an array then
    answer "No thumbnails"
else
    create image
    set the text of it to imageArray[1]
end if

This assumes that you want the first thumbnail.   I have seen photos 
that have multiple thumbnails, each a different size.

Hope this helps.
    Mike
