blogdown for generating websites and blog-posts from
Rmarkdown files with lots of inserted code and figures seems pretty awesome, but sometimes you want to include a figure manually, either because you want to generate something manually and convert it (say for going from SVG of lots of points to hi-res PNG), or because it is a figure from something else (like this figure from wikipedia).
To do this, you want the text of your
<img> tag to your image to be:
<img src = "/img/image_file.png"></img>
And then put the image itself in the directory

This information is also mentioned in section 2.7 of the Blogdown book. Obviously I need to do more reading.
