I just found a really nice little extension for VS Code that will dump a pasted image into a folder for you. This should make it much easier to add images to stuff here. It also drops a link to that uploaded file into your Markdown document. Very smooth once I got it configured correctly (it worked out of the box, but I set up some paths for the destination folder and the Markdown text that is pasted into the file once it saves the image you have pasted).
The extension is Paste Image.
I found it on this page, which I was using to procrastinate from actually writing: Writing Mode in VS Code - https://diessi.ca/
And, here’s an image:
