  • You can create a CRM 2011 "Web Resource" with a static image (JPG, PNG or GIF) which will allow you to upload the image into CRM. Then you would simply add the web resource to the form layout to display the static image. Unfortunately however, without some form of custom code, you wouldn't be able to upload an image or multiple images onto a record and have them displayed automatically. With a silverlight app similar to the App I linked earlier, you could create a silverlight resource that could be embedded into CRM and display attached images. This resource would be directly embedded into CRM and wouldn't require a connection to an external source like an iFrame would.

  • It depends on what you are trying to do. If you simply want to attach an image to a record and not have it be displayed, you can attach a file to most any record in CRM using the attach functionality (look for the paperclip icon under the add ribbon).

    If you want to display the image in a form, you could create a Web Resource with the image and then add that resource to your form layout through customization. If you wanted a different image to display depending upon the record, you would need to look at a programatic solution. There are a number of options. I would check out this silverlight solution created by Carlton Colter: http://mscrmblogger.com/2011/05/10/crm-attachment-image-for-crm-2011-entities/

  • Hi Rob,

    Thanks for your suggestion. I want to display images in form. I had implemented this functionality using the web application.

    I want to know is there any another way in CRM 2011 or any inbuilt feature through which I can achieve this same functionality without adding web application.
