Dear devs

I've been updating the <help> section for a locally developed tool and want to 
include some images, but I've had some issues trying to see them when testing locally.

I've followed the instructions outlined here:

(i.e. put the images files into a 'static/images/' subdir of the tool directory and 
reference them using ".. image:: picture.png")

However when I load the tool into a Galaxy using "planemo serve ..." the images fail 
to render: I just get a line of text with the image filename. The same thing happens when I add 
the tool manually on our local server (i.e. by adding a <tool file=...> reference to the 
tool XML in the appropriate conf.xml file).

If I upload the same tool files to a toolshed and then install from there, I do 
see the images rendered correctly.

I'm a bit baffled as to why there should be a difference. Is there an option or 
setting I've missed to turn on the image rendering for non-shed-installed 
tools? Or have I made some other mistake?

Thanks for your help,

Best wishes
