This would seem to suggest that for at least uploaded images displaying those should be possible since that image information is in the database. For inline images that people insert using bbcode tags that would require some sort of parser to be written to look for those and convert them to html before placing into the rss feed stream.
The first one is probably pretty easy, the latter probably more difficult, and I understand if there is no time for a developer to work on one or both, but if you could put it down as a requested feature I would appreciate it!
(As a work-around you can have your Reviews or Classifieds feed into a vbulletin forum and then use the VB
forum's RSS feed to serve up the items with pics included since vb
built a parser into their RSS feed - it's not always the cleanest solution but it works)
