(Archived) PSD and ZIP files in Evernote is a no go ?


Recommended Posts

I don't know if I'm way off here or if it's just a matter of time, but I noticed that it's not possible to save .psd or .zip files in Evernote, not even in a local notebook.

I'm still not 100% sure how to use Evernote, but so far I think I'll go with a notebook for each project im working on (usually 2-5 different websites), but I also use Evernote for personal stuff, which is why I call my work notebooks for "Work: " and I would have loved to be able to save some graphics from our designer as zip or psd in there. Otherwise I would have to keep notes and to-do's in evernote and non-image files somewhere on my harddrive where I might as well put my notes too then.

Let me know please if I'm being ridiculus :(

Currently, Evernote does not accept arbitrary large binary files ... it's designed to hold notes and memories that can be searched, which is currently limited to: text, html, jpeg, png, gif, wav, mp3, pdf.

We're not really tuned to just be a "hard drive" for random files ... I.e. we don't want to just be a backup for random .exe files, etc. We do plan to expand our list of supported media, but wanted to keep a focus on notes and documents, rather than just being a bulk storage dump. We're still in internal discussions on this topic, however.

Thanks for the feedback

I haven't played around with audio files yet, but I'm curious about your support for wav and mp3 files. Are these just opaque binary files, or do you do some voice-to-text processing to make them searchable? If they're opaque, can I use a different format? For instance, I generally record meetings in Speex (.spx) format because of the higher level of compression for voice-oriented recordings. Can I add those to my notebook?

We have done some prototyping of speech recognition for audio notes, but have not implemented it in the production service, because we weren't satisfied with the quality. (Using Jott into Evernote seems to work really well, in comparison.)

On the other hand, we would like audio files you add to play correctly on different platforms when you sync. For example, you can (usually) play audio notes on the iPhone web UI, which would fail if these were arbitrary bits instead of common standards.

Thanks
