Evernote Tutorial: Adding & Taking Photos

With Evernote, all of your notes, web clips, files and images are made available on every device and computer you use. But did you know Evernote has a way to take or insert a photograph from inside the Evernote Application on your iPhone? 

Choose Camera Icon
Open Evernote app on your phone and select the blue + icon to start a new note. To take a photo, choose the camera icon

Take the photo you want, then either RETAKE or USE. If you choose USE the photo pops up inside your Evernote note.

It will sync to all your devices. You can also choose to put it on Twitter, Facebook, print it or email it to someone.

To choose a photo from your Camera roll (instead of taking a new one) simply choose the little photograph icon beside the camera when you are in a new note.

Your camera roll pops up and you can choose any photo you wish to insert in your  note.

If you want to add a series of photos in one note, here's a little tip on how to do that. Choose photo #1 and after it is inserted in the new note, choose the photograph icon again to return to your camera roll.

Choose a second photo and you will see it inserted under the first photo in your note. Keep choosing as many photos as you wish.

One caveat: I discovered that if I insert more than 5 or 6 in a note and then try to email it, it doesn't go. But it will still sync to your devices.

I've seen Evernote at genealogy conferences but haven't ever delved into it. Thanks for your post, I think I have a new software to work on.
