I know little of markdown or html beyond basic use, but does your markdown
engine support inline html/js/css? I used a css slideshow for the infamous
plugins site. I imagine something suitable could be whipped up to put all
the images in some directory to be put into a slider. Along the lines of
http://www.justinwhall.com/directory-jquery-slider/  maybe?
