I've found the easiest solution for the iPhone is to use the native camera app and email the photos to my Evernote Upload address. When you email a photo the iPhone gives you the option of sending the photo in smaller sizes. From the photo album you can select multiple photos to send in a single email. It's an extra step (you have to sync before the photos show up in Evernote), but it's fast, simple, and I don't have to fuss with the photo once it's in a note.
ACSmartbuilding, I use the free Nitro Reader from Nitro PDF with Evernote Desktop in Windows 7. I can open a pdf file directly from a note, annotate it, and when I close the note and save the changes they appear in Evernote. Good Luck.
