Hi @Thierry66, this isn’t something the Google Docs node supports, so you might want to write a feature request for this.

For the time being, you would need to make the required API Request (this method with this request element) through the HTTP Request node. From looking at the documentation, this endpoint does not support uploading images though, so you would need to upload your image to another service first, then insert the image through its URL.
