  • If you look at the URL of the image, it includes "_layouts", this folder is a specal folder pointing to local drive of the SharePoint Server. So in your case the images were located on the local hard drive of the on-premises SharePoint 2010 server(s). In SharePoint Online, you cannot manage content of that location, so during migration those images were ignored.

    You will need to copy the images from local environment to SharePoint Online library (such as asset library) and update the image references in SharePoint Online so that they point to this new location in SharePoint Online.
