Yes.  Get Bruce Foster's Archive plugin.  You can run it for each
file, and it will gather the referenced graphics into a single
folder and update the references to them.  It's $25 shareware.

That would be a generated List of References, where you select
imported graphics as the items to reference.  You do it the same 
way you generate a TOC or IX.  Or if you want it alphabetical,
rather than sequential, make an Index of References instead.
