Yes, but only in a virtual box vm, there's something wrong with my system,
running the scripts that I wrote in dev-env-setup in the vm works perfectly,
on my own system it leaves me with no TTY and I have to restart my
my computer to get it back (I've searched a bit on how to resolve this,
but I am still very much a linux noob).

Thanks I got it working. That is correct syntax. I think it's helpful to have
an example in context, because it wasn't clear from what I found online
that the 'size=' was supposed to go inside the [[ ]], from the examples
online it was placed after the ]]. So for the future newbies, here's an
example in context.
[[!img 180nm_Oct2020/2020-07-03_11-04.png size=825x825 ]]

Works nicely :)

I did, unfortunately the answers were unclear (see above).
