Couldn't you just read the contents of the file and execute the contents with PS/Batch?

E.g. Hide this as a .jpg:

ipconfig /all >test.txt

Then use PS/Batch to read the contents of the file and execute as a string. Still, requires 2 files (runner and jpg) so it doesn't really help your case unless you use a Bash Bunny/Rubber Ducky to execute the file.

Look into polyglots and steganography. Stegosploit and similar projects are worth looking into.
