+1, this is the single most common missing feature that I encounter while using todo.sr.ht.

Accepting attached images via email + via drag-n-drop in the WebUI (and generating a corresponding markdown line) would be in line with the SourceHut values of being simple and minimalistic.

I suppose that the biggest issue in implementing this feature is that it might considerably increase bandwidth required to host todo.sr.ht, but that potentially can be mitigated by placing a small and strict limit on the size of the images (e.g. 100KB). For better user experience, the system can accept larger images and then resize to fit into the limit. Screenshots / diagrams is what people are looking to attach, not their holiday photos or animated memes.

I am potentially available to help with the implementation, but an encouragement and initial directions from the todo.sr.ht maintainers would be appreciated.
