    The problem is that SharePoint is behind a login and PVA can only show images by returning a URL pointing to the image on an anonymous access location. Since PVA messages don't support HTML there is no way to return the image as a Base 64 encoded string for display the way you would in a PDF. So I've never seen a solution for displaying an image in a bot that uses SharePoint for storage.
