Is uploading images with theme files possible?

Hey yall,

I got a minor question. Is there a way to upload images with theme files, so the user can link to them in their articles? I used markdown and so uploading images inline when writing the article is a pain.

I’m just hosting the images I need elsewhere, so it’s not a big deal, just curious because I’ve experimented and can’t make uploading images work, although it seems like it should.
