May I interest the gentleman in the --forceformat option:
     --forceformat ".ext":   force image output format

Using --forceformat ".jpg" should do the trick.

With the --noconvert option you are supposed to copy the file
yourself. Maybe I should add a
  --format copy
or something for this cases.

Actually, the optimal conversion should be done in-place, instead of
copying the document to a special directory. I don't know how to do
that from inside LyX, I always convert my documents from the command
  python -m elyxer --noconvert original.lyx output.html
If you do it this way, eLyXer should not convert by default any images
and point to their original locations.

In summary: --forceformat ".jpg"

--noconvert from the same directory.

How does it perform? I don't have many reports from the field about LyX 2.0.
