Images in subfolder?

How can I put images in subfolders and reference them via

   ![](_subfolder/image.jpg)

I tried exactly this, but the images are not found like this.

Make sure your image path resolves correctly. If you want to use a relative path, make sure you are referring to the image from the location of the text file of your post.

It might be easier to use an absolute path, e.g.

   ![](/_subfolder/image.jpg)

The easiest way is to place the image, e.g. _photo.jpg inside the same subfolder as the text or markdown file, and then this relative path will resolve correctly:

   ![](_photo.jpg)

I recognise this might all be complicated but Blot follows general computing standards for relative and absolute paths and knowledge gained here will apply elsewhere

Thanks, I tried again - and now it works with relative image paths! (Maybe I just didn't wait long enough until everything was synced via Dropbox. - Sorry!)

BTW, I want to put images in a subfolder, because when I have more posts the images will cluttered the Posts directory quite a bit.
