I have checked with Salesforce Support. it seems Images in RTF field is not supported in Emails.

I got the following reply:

I informed you that this is because the image is not available externally and is only accessible by internal users can log in to your org. As I informed you, we recommend uploading images to the documents tab first if you want to send it via email.

Below is a related article that mentions we recommend uploading email template images to the Documents tab:


As a workaround, I suggested you to upload images from an external web address instead. When you add image in the rich text field, instead of uploading the image, you need to enter the URL of the image.
