Photos & Images (Mac)

Enrich notes and tell a story by adding photos and images.

There are several ways to add photos to a note:

  • Drag and drop a photo from the desktop onto:
    • An open note. The photo will be inserted into the open note.
    • The note list. A new note containing the photo will be created.
    • A subject. A new note containing the photo will be created in that subject.
  • Edit > Insert Photo (from the Edit menu at the top of your computer screen) opens a Finder window in which a photo or photos can be selected to add to the open note.
  • Copy a photo from another source and paste into a note with Control-Click, two finger tap on a trackpad, or Edit > Paste (from the Edit menu at the top of your computer screen).
  • File > Import (from the File menu at the top of your computer screen) opens a Finder window in which a photo can be selected to create a new note.
