Have you looked at the  images.log  file?
Are there messages in there that would indicate an error in the
LaTeX job that generates the images?

If you already have .gif or .jpg or .png  images, then it's
easy enough to use "conditional" coding, with the  \htmladdimg
command giving links for the HTML files.

For example,

\htmladdimg[... options ...]{../figs/myimage.gif}

where the images are in a subfolder  figs/  of the working
directory. Note that LaTeX2HTML creates the HTML files within
a subfolder also, so you need to get the relative path correct.

Is the above what you are looking for?

Hope this helps,
