Add images in Squarespace when writing in Markdown

One of my biggest gripes with Squarespace version 6 (and there are many) is that I couldn't figure out how to add images in between two paragraphs when writing in Markdown. Today I finally got annoyed enough that I stopped writing to figure out an solution.

An hour of trial and error got me nowhere, so I turned to Google. Thankfully, I found this article by Devir Kahan that explains an easy way to do it. It's a bit of a hack, but a clever one. It works and it's relatively painless. Awesome!
