Editor’s Note: The Evernote features described in this blog post have changed. Please reference our comparison page for a current list of features and pricing levels.

Just two short weeks ago, we launched the completely redesigned Evernote Web. It came complete with a totally new interface, new sharing options, huge speed enhancements, and lots more. At launch, there were a few features that we had not yet implemented, which were available in the old Evernote Web. We’re excited to announce one of the biggest: file attachments.

Attaching files on Evernote Web

Now, attaching any file to your notes on Evernote Web is a snap. You have two options.

Paper clip icon
Click the paper clip icon in the note tool bar. Then browse to the file on your computer. You can attach multiple files to a single note.

Drag and drop
If you’re looking for an even easier option, grab a file off of your desktop or file system and drag it onto the title bar of the note you’re editing. You can drag multiple files at once, or one by one up to a total of ten. File drag and drop currently works on Chrome and Safari.

Why this is cool

Your memories take many forms. Evernote is not only great for saving them, but also for giving you the full story about those memories. If you’re going on a trip, your Evernote account may contain checklists, itineraries, confirmations, photos, and web clips. If you’re collaborating with your team, then you might have meeting notes, Powerpoints, audio recordings, and whiteboard snapshots. Keeping everything in one place, makes life a whole lot easier.

Premium feature: Attach any file

Free users can attach up to 25MB of text, images, audio and PDFs to their notes. Premium subscribers can attach any file they like, up to a 50MB. Also, Premium users get 1GB of new note content per month, great for attaching lots and lots of stuff. Learn more about Evernote Premium »

We still have many updates to Evernote Web in the works. This is only the beginning.

    Wow. Amazing!! This upgrade was so needed!! The only 3rd party software I run on my computer is Evernote. Everything else is in the Cloud (the old site was not there yet). Love it. No longer have to install Evernote. My computing life just became perfect.

  • Justin

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! 🙂

  • Foger Thornton Brown

    Nice work guys but I’m increasingly thinking you have it all backwards. I want to create Evernotes, from web links files etc. on the move, on my mobile device, in my case a droid, and digest this stuff at my desktop pc.

  • Edna

    Awesome!! I love evernote, it is one of must haves!!

  • Jill

    I was just thinking about how I wanted this feature added. You read my mind.

  • Jesse

    I’m with Spicer…my Macbook is ailing so I’ve removed nearly all software. All that’s left is Chrome and Evernote…now I might experiment with using EN web and see if I can get this down to just Chrome!

    Thanks as always, and know that just as soon as I have some money, I’ll be upgrading to Premium finally!

  • Nicola

    Thank you!

    All is left from my perspective is the encryption issue, and I’ll make the move to the new version permanent 🙂

  • Andrew

    Nice improvement… can’t wait for it to remember last used folder… have to use old evernote at work at not show off the new interface until we get that ability! 🙁

  • pep

    Love this app but still there are lot of problems when notes editing stuff.

    keep the good job

  • Thommango

    I love the drag files here feature. I may ditch the client version at some point in the future, but I like having the offline version for important stuff.

  • David E Y Sarna

    This is a wonderful, useful, and time-saving feature.
    Thank you Team Evernote.

    @ Spicer

    Sounds great, working completely in the cloud. But where do you keep your photos and music? And, regarding evernote, what about important documents with things like your social security number on it, or other sensitive information? I still hesitate to put it on evernote. But for everything else: great service!

    I see how to add a picture via the web interface – but how do i detach that picture and get back the same size image – if i try “save ” or “save as” i just get the low res version (I checked on the desktop – the full size image is in the database )

  • zlovesti

    nice work. Really time-saving.

  • Babs

    A question..may sound dumb after all this time, BUT how do you rotate photos to the correct position within Evernote? Sometimes when I send a pic form my IPhone, it is not received in the correct position….please address this.
    The Webby award is TERRIFIC…but you really DESERVE an OSCAR of APPS awards! Really enjoy the podcasts!

    • Shane Phillips

      right click on the image and open it in a photo editor i use preview on my mac. Rotate the pic in the editor and then when u are done save it. The pic will appear in evernote with all the changes to it that u did in the editor

  • Shane Phillips

    i use dropbox for my pics and music is in itunes

  • Michael Valler

    How come I can’t seem to find a way to attach files on the web version? It describes above that ther is a icon (which isn’t there now) and the drag and drop isn’t working. How do we do this now?
