add images to a guide intro

I've made a guide and I need to insert two images in the intro. When I create the guide I'm able to insert images, also more than one, but I don't see them in the preview. Maybe I can insert only one image which goes as the cover of the guide? Thanks!

here is the published Guide, images added are inserted in the source code:

Excellent! Yes, html is the work-around I use as well when creating guides for my challenges. Well done!

great, I've only had some problems in main image format. I've made it in portrait style but in the feed of Instructables it only showed the central portion, now I've changed it, I'll wait the feed refreshes...
Ha! Now you're ready to come work here. Here's a tip: the current format for the feed is 6x5. It used to be square, so a lot of old images look funky in the current layout. This too is subject to change, but for today, maybe that helps.
"This too is subject to change"?
I was contemplating the idea of fixing all my "funky" main images... Any idea what we may be changing to? (or are we going back to a square?) *sigh*
@canucksgirl I am in the same boat, with many of my title images having been cropped for the new layout. I was going to change them over, but thought better of it in case there are future changes. 

Moving forward, I think I am just going to focus on how the project looks from the Instructable page and not worry about the thumbnails as they appear when indexed (rectangular) or how they appear on my You page (square).
So, moving forward... will you be squaring your main images or using the current 6 x 5 format (just curious, as I have no idea what I intend to do).
Whichever looks best on the project page, it might be square or it might be a rectangle. In my last project I experimented seeing I could have a 6x5 formatted image but all the subject matter in a centered square. I'm not sure if that method is going to work out well all the time.

On a similar note, check the pictures on an Instructable with more than 3 pictures in any step. If there are 1-2 images on a step it will display them as wide as the frame allows (normal). Three or more pictures per step, it seems with an odd number of pictures the secondary images are cropped rectangular, while the steps with even pictures are cropped square.
Very good point Mike. I did notice that. (Something else to keep in mind). Thanks.
