Is there anyone here who has knowledge of or uses this plug-in? I have problems handling images and I don’t know the solution. Does anyone have a code that actually works? I have tried to follow the documentation but still get an error message. My code is based on the example from the documentation, but where do I insert the parameter for handling images.

const toMarkdown = require('@sanity/block-content-to-markdown')
const client = require('@sanity/client')({
  projectId: '<your project id>',
  dataset: '<some dataset>',
  useCdn: true

const serializers = {
  types: {
    code: props => '```' + props.node.language + '\n' + props.node.code + '\n```'

client.fetch('*[_type == "article"][0]').then(article => {
  console.log(toMarkdown(article.body, {serializers}))
