Did you know Evernote can recognize words in pictures?

When you upload a picture to Evernote, we will automatically index it and make it searchable, so you can always easily find what you’re looking for. This works for printed as well as handwritten text.

Pro tip: to improve results write clearly and use a camera with zoom to reduce blurriness and get a crisp image.

Evernote Revisited: Perfect DIY Companion

I recently started a massive landscaping project at my house…It also involves putting in a new driveway, parking court and patio, as well as a new privacy fence. To get everything we want, I’m serving as general contractor, and I needed a single place to store notes, shopping lists, links to websites with products or inspiration, task lists, and more…

..A few times recently, my wife and I have seen examples of something we like that we might want to incorporate into our landscape, so I simply create a Snapshot note to add to the project notebook..
