Embedded Images

Hi guys,

I have been exporting my designs from Illustrator to .svg files. They have been working fine when I import them into Invision except for when there are images contained. I get the following message:

"Studio only supports embedded images in SVGs, so external image references have been ignored. (3 occurences)."

I'm not sure what's the best/fast workaround for this, and any help will be appreciated.
