Evernote lets you keep everything that matters to you in one place, and that includes files, documents, and photos. It’s as easy to get a file out as it is to put it in. Today, we’d like to show you how you can drag any photo or file from your Evernote desktop client to any app or service that allows attachments.

In Evernote for Mac and Windows: Click on an image or document inside a note. Hold down your mouse and drag.

Drag and Drop Images
This feature is handy for:

Bloggers: Drag and drop images from your Evernote account into a post in your blogging platform.
Graphic designers: Share mocks and sketches (including those created in Skitch and Penultimate) with your team or clients by dragging them into email.
Architects: Drag site inspection photos into an email to your team.
Freelancers: Drag and drop articles, mockups, receipt photos, and more into client emails.
Job hunters: Keep your resume ‘on file’ in Evernote, send it to recruiters and interviewers by dragging the doc into an email.
Photographers: Drag and drop photos from your Evernote account into your photo-sharing site.
Community/Social Media Managers: Drag and drop images from your Evernote account into Facebook, Twitter, and any number of services that help you manage your social media accounts and accept file attachments.
Anyone: Drag and drop documents from your Evernote account to your desktop, and vice versa so you never have to worry about leaving files at home, on another computer, or on a thumb drive.

Have you tried this feature recently? If so, we’d love to hear how you use it.

    Does it work with Pdf files? it llooks like it doesn’t for me

    • AndrewSinkov

      You can drag PDFs too, but first you need to right click on the PDF and select “View as Attachment”.

      • roelatmac

        you also can open the pdf in preview (right-click, open) and drag from the sidebar directly in mail.

    Thanks for this! Send a lot of attachments by email and love knowing that I can drag and drop straight from evernote. Very handy.

    It doesn’t seem to work if the doc is sent via “Save PDF to Evernote” on OS X, or if the Evernote Drop Folder is used.

    Im using evernote to organize different sound samples I will be using in a music project. It’s incredibly helpful to organize my ideas and keep notes on them, but what I need is the ability to export all the imported files very easily, so I can export them into a folder I can easily access when working on a project. Dragging one by one is too time consuming to be intuitive.

  • Tracey Smith

    It’s funny, but I’ve often dragged files INTO Evernote, but just never occurred to me I could drag them back out too!

  • Tracey Smith

    Yes you can. I’ve dragged files into Evernote many times, but never occurred to me to drag them out until this post. It’s very easy.
