Hello Sampath Kumar,

If your image is stored at folder then you can give path of the image in rml.


<image file="/home/my_image/my_image.png" x="6" y="0" width="21.5cm" height="21.5cm"/>

Hope this will solve your problem.

Thanks for your reply... but should my image file path start from the corresponding rml file folder or the complete path of the image folder should be given.......in the sense if my rml file is in accounts/reports folder and my image is in accounts/images folder then the path should be given as accounts/images or the complete path C:/....../addons/accounts/images

I recommend to put the image in your module under image folder and then give path accordingly.
