Resizing images using alternate id syntax

Steps to reproduce

Create a note in your vault with this content:



![ ][2]

[2]: "|103"

Expected result

All of the images above should be resized to around 100px in width, and scaled appropriately. Like shown in image below:

Actual result

The images with the alternate text of “|102” and “|103”, doesn’t resize the images. The validity of these image links can be seen in Markdown Tutorial - Images, even though that doesn’t consider resizing.

Do note that for “|102”, Obsidian actually picks up the alternate text, it just doesn’t recognise it as a resizing attribute. The “title” part from “|103” is blatantly ignored, all together.
