ANSWERED Is there a way to assign tags to images in a note? (General)

Recommended Posts

Any way we can assign tags to images in a note(or at least insert a tag line on top of a image in that note)?

I have lots of images in one note so I can browse through them easily by swiping left/right in IOS/Android Apps. But some images share the same characteristics so I want to assign a tag for these images.

Right now I have to create separate folders to manually sort out all images in "Main folder", say folder 1, folder 2. I use main folder to insert all images and I use sorting folders to group images sharing the same characteristics. I have to manually copy each image in main folder to different sorting folders. That's very painful and causes multiple copies for one "master" image and if I want to annotate the "master" image, I have to copy the changed master image to the sorting folders again.

Main folder(10 images)

folder 1(5 images)

folder 2(4 images)

Thank you @DTLow

 

Any way we can browse all images in a folder by using keyboard arrow key or swiping in IOS/Android? In that case, I can create multiple notes(one image per note) in a main folder and can still browse them easily when in gallery mode.

Evernote doesn't support folders.  Notes are assigned to a notebook.
Using the notebook dropdown, we can select a notebook.

No arrow key; we have to select the note to view the images.

No folder concept in EN, but if you double click on an image in a note the image viewer window should open and you can then use the arrows to the side to go forward/backwards through the images in the note.  Windows version anyway.

thanks @DTLow and @CalS .

sorry, what I meant is notebook. I use them to organize notes.

 

Hopefully evernote can have more features in the future to organize images better for use cases above.

No problem.  Not sure if presentation mode would work the way you want, but that is another option that spans notes.

thank you. I was looking into this but I don't think this mode is available for IOS/Android App.

 

Usually, I create notes/images/annotate using MAC and then use IOS/Android to browse through all images. I need a way to browse all images in a notebook on mobile apps.

one more question.

I don't think EN has the concept of "master" image where the copies of the images all pointing to the original "master" image. So after I make any annotation changes to the "master" image, all copies of this image got updated also(internally they are just a link to the "master" image).

I tested right click menu of "Copy" vs "Copy Image" but it looks like the same to me.

Each copy is a unique entity; no link back to the master image.

You might want to rethink your copy process.
A better approach is tags or keywords assigned to a single version of the image.  You can assign multiple entries to the image.
