I am using GNU Emacs 26.3 inside a remotely connected linux machine.

I was wondering is it possible to display inline images in Emacs markdown-mode? Seems like it is possible (link) in org-mode?

Using M-x markdown-toggle-inline-images gives Cannot show images message in the minibuffer.

basic setup:

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/markdown-mode")

(autoload 'markdown-mode "markdown-mode.el"
  "Major mode for editing Markdown files" t)

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.md\\'" . markdown-mode))

md file:

# test

Yes it is possible (at least with Emacs 27 running locally) with M-x markdown-toggle-inline-images or C-c C-x TAB

  • Sorry I forget to add to my questions, using markdown-toggle-inline-images gives Cannot show images message, ah because I am using GNU Emacs 26.3 I cannot show it than. Maybe only for md files I can switch to using GNU Emacs 27

    I don't know if it depends on the version. I just said that with Emacs 27 on my machine works.

  • Would it be also working with emacs 28?

    Does this work for an image on the internet?
