Missing image in note

Recommended Posts

I created a note several months ago which had a photo in it (which leads me to believe it was most likely created using my iPhone). However when I search for that note now, the search results (in the Evernote iPhone app) show that note with an image, but when I click on that note (or when I search for it in a browser) no image appears.

My guess is that the site you clipped (assuming that it was a web clipping) from had a link to that image on a different server, and the image was then removed from the server, so nobody gets it. Did you check the original web site to see if the image is there and has the same link?

That is not the case. I took a photo of something I wanted to file from within the Evernote app (or possibly uploaded one from my phone or shared from a WhatsApp conversation).

I have similar problems. I was offline for an extended period and was using old notes for reference; I guess that's partially the purpose of Evernote: A database where you have all your web clips, notes etc. 

When exporting the note as ENEX, , I see that in many, if not most cases pictures are "integrated" into the note as 

<en-media hash="a0326cc8186ec1a28773e5bf95e88e57" type="image/jpeg"/>

but in other cases they are just referenced as in (### is part of a web address)

<img src="https://images.#####.com/####>

which of course does not work when offline. Also, if the web site referenced should change or disappear, it will be definitely too late to fix it.

  • How do these references arise? What forms clipping. Is it from copy/paste? Copy/pasting such images seems not to help, as only thel link seems to be copy/pasted. What is the criterion. I cannot recognize a clear strategy.
  • I see them when I'm offline. How can I see what images are not "integrated into the note" when I'm online.
  • Is there a script to find the notes with those occurrences? I have thousands of notes, so anything manual involving checking individual notes is not realistic. Similarly, exporting notes in ENEX and checking whether some images may be included or not is not a realistic way.
  • Is there a way to fix them, other than manually?
  • Are there other resources that are typically lost when taking/clipping a note, and related problems?
  • Btw, I also have sometimes corrupted images, Windows, copy/paste. The picture shows up OK on top, but at some point starts becoming noisy, offset, discolored or is just disappearing. It may be that only JPG pictures are affected; I did not investigate that. Does Evernote have any form of check or warning for notes that are getting corrupted.

I'm highly interested in Evernote being the "elephant memory" that the Evernote philosophy suggests.

Confirmed, this is Evernote's enml standard for media

You should address with Evernote support at https://www.evernote.com/SupportLogin.actionn   
The Evernote process is to download all images and "integrated into the note"
