It would be a nice option to allow image links to be broken and the image included in the output file (if supported).

Can you give an example ? I don't understand "allow image links to be broken"

If you have a .doc or .html (possibly others, but oddly not .odt) with an image linked to the real image (http or file system), you can "break the links" (OO/LO terminology) by going to menu->edit->links, There will be a "Break Link" button. This seems to pull the image in and stores it within the document. I can provide an example, but not sure how to attach to the thread.

Ok, so this feature becomes part of the #84 idea which is part of processing/manipulating documents before exporting. We do not plan to add options for every individual use-case, but rather provide a plugin-mechanism allowing people to add one or more extensions.

"Break the links" means that images will be wrapped inside document.
Now it works only with rtf if i convert from html, why?

Can you try this again ? I have a feeling that a newer LibreOffice release has fixed this.
Please also use the most recent unoconv from the master branch.

If this issue is still relevant to you, feel free to reopen this issue.
