images are downloaded instead of displayed in browser

Shared URLs are now forcing the browser to download the image instead of display them.

 

Example link: http://note.io/1JgwZbP

 

Network tab of browser shows: 

Content-Disposition:attachment; filename="skitch.png"

How can we get this fixed? the purpose of skitch is to show people images, not force them to download it.

This makes it hard to use Evernote now for creating technical documentation and screenshots because of this. Will this be fixed anytime soon?

 

The Note URLs are less than optimal because it results in a smaller, square cropped image when posting in things like Slack Channels, too.

Thanks for your patience while we worked on this. Direct image URLs displaying in the browser are no longer supported on Skitch. If you would like to have the image display in the browser please switch to the "Note URL" option as shown here: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s263/sh/d35dc23f-d568-4961-a6c7-c818cf744e18/7df932e5cede565e.

I don't even understand why you'd remove this. The webservers clearly support it as you can just load the note URL then click the image and you get the direct URL anyway. It's just forced advertising to make sure people know we're using skitch. But I use this for documentation, not to paste stuff to others. 

 

Such a shame, bye skitch.

Wow. Fantastic way to treat paying customers. Time to look for another solution and to cancel my premium account. I too used it for documentation and collaboration internally, and now you're really breaking the workflow by purposefully choosing a broken mime type for Evernote servers. Complete jerk move.

https://puush.me/is working OK at the moment, although the screen select hotkey doesn't appear to automatically upload, i've contacted the developer. let me know what else you find.

Totally dislike. It's a pity, I liked and supported Skitch much from the beginning. Now it is just a tool from the list of mediocre screenshoters.

Thanks for posting this info, to remove this functionality is a bad choice by Evernote but one still needs to know that available services are being downgraded,

I've been struggling with this for most of a year, then finally found this thread.   Glad to finally have a resolution.    I'm leaving Skitch now in favor of Annotate for Mac.   A flat $2 and then it works with your own dropbox account.

I just use  https://github.com/mileswd/mac2imgur now. It works great, straight to imgur, local storage in a folder you choose.

Disappointing to see this feature be downgraded, and makes my Premium account worthless. I'm not going to renew, unfortunately paid a whole year in advance.:angry::angry:

  • Cannot use it in documentation in Image-URLs
  • Being forced to promote Evernote brand using Note URL. I don't want to. I paid for Premium just to use the service, not to promote your brand.
  • People I'm sharing URLs with are forced to download files. They hate me for it, for a stupid feature-tweak _you made!

Summary of alternatives other contributors posted:

  1. mac2imgur
  2. Annotate
