Yes.  You can do that with the free demo version of Mif2Go:
  http://www.omsys.com/dcl/download.htm
Choose any format (like Generic HTML), and in the .ini set:

[GraphExport]
ImportGraphics=Export

They will appear with names of form aaaannnn.pcx, where 
aaaa is from the file name and nnnn is a number beginning 
with 0001 for each file.  You can set how many letters 
and numbers are used; see the User's Guide, par. 2.4.2, 
"Replacing embedded graphics with referenced graphics".

Not with Mif2Go.  However, IIRC, Rick Quatro has a plugin
that does that.  I just looked on his site and don't see
it, but you might ask him directly:

HTH!
