http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/Images#faqThe Attach-markup on the
original (included) page must explicitly have the

How can I include a page from another group that contains an attached image?
> Include the page in the normal way, ie (:include GroupName.Pagename:). In
> the page to be included (that contains the image) change
> Attach:filename.ext to Attach:{$Group}./filename.ext.

This is a bit disappointing, especially given the existence of the
"basepage" parameter for the (:include:) markup.
