Embed Image in Send mail from an attachment

In this post, we’ll understand how to send the embed image in Send mail body in Azure LogicApps.

Question: I am receiving an email with an attachment that is an image (The same image is also in the body). I want to forward that image, but I can’t find a way to add that image to the body of “Send mail(V2)”.

More specific it’s the mail from the Power BI subscription, the default mail isn’t pretty, and would like to add custom text and so on to the mail sent out to consumers.

Solution: As per the question, we want to send the embedded image in the mail body using the “Send mail(V2)” action in Azure LogicApp.

  1. We have to convert the image content to Base64 because we can’t pass the plain content of the image.
  2. In Compose action we’ll covert the content as per requirement.
  3. Now in Send mail(V2) action, we can use the output of composing action. Let’s check the below steps with a screenshot;
