Autodesk have recently launched a subscription update for Inventor 2018.1. The update should be available to all subscription customers from your Autodesk Desktop App, or via your Autodesk Account.
This exciting new release of Autodesk Inventor adds an enhancement to the BoM export options. When you export your BoM to Excel, the thumbnails are now taken through to Excel. In previous versions, the spreadsheet would show "Thumbnail not Available".
