What I like about Apple's note app is that it supports pictures. However, when I use the browser interface, the pictures disappear after I inserted them and switch to another note. Also, they are not downloaded to the Notes desktop app.

Is there something I could do about it?

I assume you use copy paste from Internet to notes. – Buscar웃 Apr 16 '13 at 21:48
I think he means copy pictures in the web interface (iCould) of notes. When you have a picture on the clipboard, you can do CMD+V and it will show up on your note on iCloud, but it will not save/sync to your iPhone/your desktop app. – Vincent Apr 17 '13 at 4:17
Yes, that was exactly what I was doing. I thought this might be a particular problem, but it seems that this feature is not supported in general – bluewoodtree Apr 17 '13 at 19:07

I don't think the web interface (iCloud) supports adding pictures (yet). The only way to add pictures to a note is using from the Applications folder, but you figured that out already.

I thought that this might be a glitch or bug, but okay, now I know that this feature is not supported – bluewoodtree Apr 17 '13 at 19:08
