For what I can see, images can only be inserted in a topic as a link to an exisiting file.
This is really a big limitation, especially if you work with SQL Server instead of files and folders.

Why not allowing images to be stored directly into the database (as binary data) ?

This is somehow related to the topic :
[1044912] Image Library

    The modification that would allow this is something that we've been discussing for a long time. Unfortunately, there's no developer bandwidth to add it at the moment. We'll likely add it in some future version of FlexWiki.

    Is there anything new about this ? Because this is really a heavy limitation, not being able to embed images in FlexWiki pages, and have everything stored in SQL Server. Too bad for FlexWiki as other wikis are offering this feature.

    Sorry, nothing yet. We're really limited by how much time people are willing to donate to the project. Until someone with the skill and the time comes along, there's not much to be done. I would do it, but I've got my hands full with the other changes required for 2.0.
