# How do you add a file location in your metadata?

I use templates to create certain documents. I want to include an image file in my latex template. The problem I am having is that I cannot have raw source in the metadata and MultiMarkdown process my jpg location into something Latex cannot use. Is there a special trick for that?

This is what I mean.

userpicture: /Users/test/john.jpg

is processed into,

\def\userpicture{\slash Users\slash test\John.jpg}

Metadata is not designed for that.

You could use local images in the same directory to avoid paths with any backslashes.
