Image preview on notes

Cintanotes will never be Evernote (which is good!).
Must admit that i am a visual guy...
What if Cintanotes could copy not only text but the image as well and give a preview of that image within each note?
Is this possible?
Even if submitted in roadmap section (haven't checked),
what if, on copying from browser CN could:
-pickup the image link;
-check with for the image;
-then insert somehow a cached version of that image ?

Just thinking out loud, but, as i said, i'm a visual guy.
Evernote and even Keepnote have easy ways to do these tasks.
I'm sure we brainwork our way to a solution for CN to do similar thing.

I sometimes clip something from a site, and drag the accompanying picture I want to keep to the new note window.
However this is likely more of a 'trick' than a 'feature,' as it doesn't seem to work on every browser.
I use Opera 12 and it works very smoothly.
Dragging from Firefox results in a massive .bmp file being added, and from Slimjet (chrome-like) it results in just a text url.

Recently discovered I could drag files from the 'Downloads' tab as well. Comes in handy when I want to add something to my abandonware repository, no problems with dragging and dropping .exe or .zip or any other file type :D
Dragging links from the URL bar, bookmarks tab or adressbook tab works well too.

About automatically copying the picture when clipping... I can copy from Firefox and paste in Excel, images included... so I guess it's not by definition impossible, the images apparently do exist somewhere in the clipboard memory... who knows? :mrgreen:

Glad to say that we do plan to add this ability in future versions.
It has a lot of votes on the roadmap btw: ... -clipping/

However, no time frame for this yet - sorry!
