Pasting Images into notes

Recommended Posts

Is there a way of pasting images from the clipboard into Evernote Web? (Prt-Screen to get an image into the clipboard, go to Evernote Web, Edit a note, Ctrl-V).

 

The Alternote Web editor for Evernote does it just fine, so it must be possible. The sad part is that Evernote Web then deltes them.

The OneNote web editor does it also.

Thank you for the request.  We have a long list of features that we will be overhauling in our editor and will keep this in consideration.

Hi, the quickest work around I've found for this is to take a screenshot with the web clipper, save it to the default notebook and then copy it from that newly created note and paste it wherever you want it to go. For me this is a lot faster than using the 'attach image' function within Evernote, especially as the image always ends up at the bottom of my note and I have to re-position it manually. I really hope the team can implement a simple copy/paste for us at some point though.

I have lots of complex, VERY long notes where I need to add images in the middle of the note...

-it is VERY frustrating that there is no way to do this in the Web version of Evernote!!!  we need a Paste facility, at point of cursor

this was possible a couple months ago - I'd been pasting images from the clipboard directly into my notes (in the web browser version of the editor - on both linux and windows). then it stopped working out of the blue. what gives? this was one of the most useful features of evernote!!

Since not all browsers handle copied and pasted images in the same way, we discovered that in some cases (primarily in Chrome on Windows) images that were pasted were not actually saved to the note and instead were linked to the note. This resulted in the loss of the image when the linked file was removed. To prevent this type of loss, the paste functionality was disabled in Evernote Web. This is something we do plan to support again but I currently do not have a timeline for when this will be available. In the meantime, the drag and drop functionality should work correctly so another workaround would be to drag and drop an image onto your desktop (or other location) and then drag and drop it into a note.

Is there any update on the copy/paste function. I find it SUPER annoying that this feature worked for me and since October it just stop. Applications like google docs handle it also, so why is evernote not finding a solution? For me this is a big issue and a reason why I WON'T upgrade my account. This is such a basic and important feature!!!! So please, give us a time line!!!! Using the desktop application is also not an option for me since I'm using Linux....

The problem is due to Chrome browser.  It cannot copy and paste images to Evernote web.

Try this:

1. Open a non-Chrome browser (Firefox works for me)

2. Right-click to copy the image.

3. Got the Evernote web. Place the cursor you want to place the image.

4. Paste the image (Ctrl-V works).

Hope this helps.

The way to do on Mac is to use the Evernote app.

I tried multiple browsers, but couldn't get it to work (there's a reason why I have to use a browser, but that's another issue!).

Hope this helps.

This is a highly desirable feature, to me.  I take detailed notes, and often wish to embed small screen capture images into the text.

 

ETA: I see from the replies above that it is Chrome specific, which is unfortunately my browser of choice (and most of the rest of the world's).  Please work on this.

It is now SEPTEMBER OF 2017. I read these suggestions and requests dating from 2015. 

 

Tonight I created a new note which resides in a new notebook. Then, I used the standard Windows 10 screen shot program, selected the part of the screen I wanted, and saved it to my hard drive. I them opened that same image, drug it the Evernote note I just created, and let go of it so I could move my cursor off of the screen. As soon as I click anywhere the screen shot I just planted in the note vanishes. Gone, MIA, moved to Las Vegas or Boston or maybe both where it commutes by Southwest. 

 

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TWO YEARS AFTER PEOPLE COMPLAINED? 

 

I hope I did something wrong and that you will tell me what it was I did.

 

Please advise.

Just tried it and dragging worked for me (Mac, Safari, using latest web version)

In fact, when dragging the picture, a Drag File message appeared in the note59b369d0dde41_ScreenShot2017-09-08at21_08_43.thumb.png.77d50e382dc146b1a86f0f062af8d4e9.png

Evernote works only for Desktop and Mobile App.
If you are on Linux or in the Browser, don't use evernote!
Slack has a very nice Linux Client.
Right now we have Evernote, i am using the Chrome App on Linux, but its no solution for this problem.
Before i tried nixnote2 and nevernote, those destroyed most of our notes (formatting)

How can this not be default behaviour? In gmail, Thunderbird (set to html) I just paste an image and it's right there. All these lasters and you have not added this simple feature tot he web app?  Why?

I can take all the extra steps to save a clip to a file unnecessarily and then drag that file into the note, which works but it not very usable in this day and age!

I am sorry for my rant.
But i found an idea for a small improvement.

If your screenshot is somewhere in the cloud. At least it worked with the default FireFox Screenshot tool.
From there i was able to copy it (right click copy picture to clipboard) into my chrome evernote app.
And hey i could paste it everywhere.
Its another improvement since local files are always put to the very end of the note.

Maybe some of you find this helpful and you may find better workflows.

I am using Ubuntu 16.04.

I can copy/paste an image from Firefox to Evernote web (in Firefox).

But it does NOT work copying an image from Libreoffice Impress to Firefox.

Drag and drop still not working.

No, it still not ) You can edit a note, write your ideas, but you can't insert a picture inline. Probably, you are supposed to index and reference them :)

Unbelievable !!!

In the "Classic" and beta web applications, drag/drop of an image from the Windows file explorer seems to work fine. Copy/paste from a Windows File Explorer window doesn't seem to work, but curiously, you can paste from the Windows Evernote screen clipper or the Windows image viewer. Kind of inconsistent there.

In the web beta, you can use the "Insert..." menu at the right hand side of the editing panel.
