In this blog, we’re going to show you how to embed an image and a video into a Knowledge Base (KB) article in Dynamics 365.

We can use an image directly if it’s already hosted on a server or we can use an image uploaded in the web resource area. To create an image in web resource, follow these steps:

1. Navigate to Settings > Customizations > Customize The System> Web Resources

Or you can directly navigate to Solutions > Web Resources

2. Name and add the image as a .png, .jpeg, or .gif file. Then upload the image and click Save and Publish. (Make sure you save the dimensions of the image according to the required size.)

3. Copy the URL link (highlighted in red) and now the image is ready to be added to an article.
