Yes.  We posted this info here May 2, in response to a similar query.  
Mif2Go can do that for you, and it works fine with the demo version; 
you don't have to buy it:

The process is described in the User's Guide, par. 29.2.3, "Exporting 
and converting embedded graphics".  It works best if the image is alone
in its anchored frame; then you get the original format at full original
resolution back.  You do *not* get the original name, because Frame does
not store it; yet another reason never to embed graphics.

Worst case, Mif2Go exports the graphic at screen resolution, in the
format you select (usually GIF or JPEG), using Frame's native graphic
export filters.  In that case, callouts, montages, etc., are retained,
but the resolution is generally much worse than the original was.
