In my tests, TeX4ht generated output correctly. I can see both the image files correctly flagged in the XML with correct path. The *.odt archive has both the images files also. I believe, it is not a problem of TeX4ht as it has not done anything wrong here. Only Libreoffice says, it has read error for the second image which has a path of "Pictures/fig/img.png" while the file is very much available as expected in the .odt.

Let others investigate, I am out of wits.

After toying around with content.xml I get the impression that images in a subfolder of "Pictures" are not supported. The resulting odt, however, contains the second image in "Pictures/fig/img.png"

Thank you for your reply Radhakrishnan,

I did also test eps but got strange read errors from libreoffice so I discarded it. Further looking into the matter I now see that the problem is the images being in a subfolder. I did attach a working example as tgz (htlatex_test.tgz) because of eps files being huge uncompressed.

Dear Liob,

You may kindly try the following modified version of your test document:

%---------------> start <------------------


\Picture[pict]{\csname Gin@base\endcsname.png
width="\expandafter\the\csname Gin@req@width\endcsname"
height="\expandafter\the\csname Gin@req@height\endcsname"

{\ht:special{t4ht=" \Hnewline
{" }
{\ht:special{t4ht=" }}




%---------------> end <------------------

You need to keep an eps version of the graphic (apart from your preferred graphic format) since TeX4ht makes use of only dvips driver and cannot get bounding box of other graphic file formats.

I have copied the output, test.odt for your checking. Hope this helps.

I have some trouble regarding htlatex converting to odt. Included images of all types I have tested (png, jpg, eps) are included in the resulting odt but are only post stamp size while the actual image data, that is included in the odt document, has a sufficient size. Looking at content.xml I recognized that there are no svg:width and svg:height entries in the draw:frame node.

I have included a minimal latex example file with the expected result as pdf and the actual result as odt. The command line arguments to create the odt file were:
htlatex htlatex_test.tex 'xhtml,ooffice,bib-,mathml-,' 'ooffice/! -cmozhtf' '-coo' '-cvalidate'
