HI Soundar,

The Data Loader can be used to import images associated with rich text fields.

Please see steps at https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000320965&type=1&mode=1

Note: The maximum size of an image that can be uploaded in a rich text area field is 1 MB.

Hi Sravya,
I was able to upload images into a rich text field using the instructions in https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000320965&type=1&mode=1. I am currently looking for alternatives because it has some limitations. If you are uploading one image per field, then you should follow the instructions. In order for me to add multiple images to one RTF, I had to copy and paste multiple img links (which is time consuming if done manually - so you would have to create code to connect the images to their desired RTF records. Also, it seems like exporting the images for whatever reason will also take some work if you intend to download hundreds of images. For this reason, I am looking for free alternatives to solve these concerns - but I think a 3rd party application might be the answer. Best of luck and I hope the Link the Swetha provided helps.
