Hi @stabylo
You have to thank the browsers and their security. If you could do what you’re trying to do, then a bad-actor could do the same and gain access to your local files, without your knowledge.
While it’s possible to inject files into the Metabase.jar file, I would recommend that you setup web server (like Nginx, Apache, etc) and host your files on that - and you could even use it as a reverse proxy too.

You got a point … i finally decided for an external link for this image.
Thanks @flamber for your answer.

Convert the image to Base 64 and embed the image directly in markdown.
