Harness the power of Evernote for Mac, a popular cloud note-taking and note-sharing tool. This course begins with a look at ways Evernote can help you note and track important items and then build and work with notes and collect notebooks for sharing. Author David Rivers also shows how to take and store photos, screenshots, and even video in notebooks. Plus, the powerful tagging and search features help keep your notes organized and accessible. The course also covers the notebook sharing and protection features, so your privacy is maintained at all times.
One of the biggest advantages to using an application like Evernote over your old-fashioned paper notebook, is the ability to store various types of content in an Evernote notebook, not just plain old text notes. For example, if you come across something that you want to capture, you can take a photo. You can create audio as well, and take pictures of entire documents or pages. We're going to look at working with media now, beginning on a mobile device. I'm on an iPad. So, the first thing you need to do is get into Evernote where you'll have access to all of your notebooks.
And over here on the left hand side, you'll notice you also have some icons for creating a new note, for taking a snapshot, as well as taking a picture of an entire page. So, in our scenario, let's say we've come across something that we want to capture. Maybe its a business card or, in our case, the mock-up of a business card being provided by a potential caterer for our User Conference 2013. This would be a business card we might hand out to all of our attendees. So, we want to store it in our notebook. All we do is go to the camera icon, give it a tap. Now, we'll line it up with our document. In this case, our mock-up of the business card.
And when everything looks good, go over to the right side, and we'll give it a tap. When we tap the camera icon, a snapshot is not only taken, but automatically stored in our default notebook. Now, we could continue snapping additional photos here on the right hand side. We could choose not to save the photos we've taken by clicking the close button, in the bottom left-hand corner or accept everything that we've action captured. In this case, you can see one item by clicking or tapping the check mark. Now, this takes us back to our notebooks. You'll see recent notes in the top left. You'll also see All Notes down below.
And if we're to go to a specific notebook, such as our Inbox, that's where we'll see that business card that we just captured in our default. That's my default and that's why I see it there. At any time we can tap the Elephant icon to go back to that original view. Now that it's in there, we can start working with it. We can move it to the appropriate folder, for example. We could also add text to it and audio. Let's switch over to the computer to work with some additional media. Now, whether you're working on a Mac or a Windows PC, when you return to your computer and go to your default Notebook, mine is my inbox, that's where I'll find that snapshot I just took with my mobile device.
If you don't see it there, you may be waiting for a sync to happen. But you can click the Sync button at any time to synchronize your notes and then you'll see it there. Now, once it's in there, there are things we can do with it. For example, we can change the title. By default, it gets the name snapshot and you'll see some additional information about where the snapshot was taken. Yours will be different than mine, but we can click and drag over it and just simply change the title. Let's type in, Caterer Karen Leslie. There we go. Now, down below, we can make changes to the image itself as well.
For example, if we click the image, you should see this line down the left-hand side. That means we're ready to start adding things. If we wanted to add text, a little note, for example, to go with this, we could. If we want to make a change to the image itself, for example, rotate it maybe 90 degrees counterclockwise. We can do that by right-clicking and choosing Rotate Counter Clockwise. Each time we do this, it's another 90 degrees. So, give it a click. It doesn't only rotate it, but it also squeezes it in so it fits nicely on the screen and you can read the contents of the business card. Very nice.
All right, let's say we wanted to add some other media to this. Maybe some audio, perhaps. Yes, we can do that as well. Let's just click again, anywhere on the note, and what we want to see is this line down the left hand side. That way we know we're going to be adding the audio above the note or before this business card mock-up, as opposed to down below where we can't see it. Now, as we go to the Tool bar, you'll notice we have a lot of formatting options for any text we might add. But over here on the right-hand side we also have a paperclip icon for attaching things. And there it is, a microphone icon for recording audio.
If you have a microphone attached to your computer or built into it, you can start recording audio in any note in any notebook. So, if we wanted attach some audio to this business card mock-up, we could do that. Let's just give it a click and you'll see a new bar appears down below. The next thing we'll want to do is adjust the levels. If the levels are too high, the volume's too high, it's going to sound distorted. We don't want to see too much yellow over here. We definitely don't want to see any red. So, you can drag that to the left to drop it down a bit. There is a timer that will time our recording, and when we're ready we just click the Record button.
At any time, we can Cancel this. Let's record some audio. This is a mock-up of a business card from Karen Leslie of the French Cafe. We might want to hand these out to our attendees at the User Conference 2013. When we hit the Save button, you'll notice that we now have audio showing up at the very top of our note just in front of our business card because we clicked there first. Now, at any time, we can come back and play this audio by hitting the Play button here. Notice, you'll see the size you'll also see that its in wav format.
And it's now part of this note, let's just hit the Play button to play it back. >> This is a mock-up of a business card from Karen Leslie at the. >> We can hit pause at any time, and we can cancel recording and hit the close button for this to close up the playback at any time. So, those are some examples of the media which you can add to your notes in an Evernote notebook. Something you could never do with the old fashioned paper notebook.
