This question already has an answer here:
Just curious here.
According to the help center, you can use this markdown for images:
And if we want, we can also use the "reference" format for images
![sample image] : http://example.com/img.jpg
So far, so good. However, the editor interface uses another format, which I'm not sure I understand the syntax of.
[![sample image]] : http://example.com/img.jpg
with the extra brackets and the duplicated
. How does that work? If I remove the inner
, I get one visible
[ in front of the image.
Like I said, just curious. I can't find this format documented anywhere. And I don't understand why there are so many different ways to insert images. Do some of those formats have features the others don't have?
