[Title of Link>http://www.blah.com] will create a link with that text and URL, i.e. in HTML:
<a href="http://www.blah.com">Title of Link</a>

[img>http://www.blah.com/image.gif] will create an inline image for that URL, i.e. in HTML:
<img src="http://www.blah.com/image.gif">

Finally, two Carriage returns in sequence will begin a paragraph. For example:

Line number 1


Line number 2

will become
