Render externally hosted image in email campaign

Hoping the community can guide us in the right direction with an issue we're having with our Marketo implementation.


We're syncing data to a contact from an external source via the API. Part of that data is a URL to an externally stored .png image. The image URL is different per contact. We're aiming to have that image displayed for each contact in a campaign we're running.


The issue we're having is actually getting that image to render in the email. We've tried two approaches so far:


1. Simply exposing the URL in the email template. This, not surprisingly, just renders the URL as a string.

2. Put the URL in the "src" attribute of an <img> tag. Unfortunately, this also didn't work either.


Any help would be very much appreciated.
