  • Hi,

    Did you check the SDK? There is a good sample in it which introduces a console to batch import the attachments or notes.

  • Yes. The Schema name is EntityImage, and you can use the API to load images. However, it's not generally included in Retrieve or RetrieveMultiple requests due to size potential. You have to explicitly ask for it. (may not be relevant to you since you're posting, not pulling, but just to be sure)

    Look in the CRM 2013 SDK help file under "Introduction to Entities in Microsoft Dynamics CRM" for details on entity images and links to code that should get you started.
