I use Apple's Notes app on my Mac, iPhone and iPad. At times, I need to log into Notes for iCloud via a Web browser (using another Mac, PC or Linux box) using the web application to access my notes without the usual apps.

While I am easily able to add an image in Notes for iOS (by inserting) and Notes for macOS (by dragging), I couldn't find a way to add images to a note using Notes for iCloud Web interface.

Is it possible to add an image (using a desktop file explorer app) to Notes for iCloud web app?

To clarify, I am looking for a way to add image(s) from a public/non-personal computer where I don't have access to my iPhone, iPad or Mac. Only possible way to access notes in this case is via iCloud web site.


As per the current implementation, it is not possible to attach images and any other file/media supported by Notes app on macOS/iOS via the iCloud Web client.

There is no control in the Notes Web app UI to attach images/supported files, neither does dragging and dropping image(s) work.

Although the lack of feature is not directly mentioned, the help document for Notes for iCloud Web (accessed by tapping the ? in the header area) makes a cursory remark about requiring macOS/iOS device for attaching items.

  • The year is 2021, and adding an image to a note from a web browser is still not possible. Great job Apple!

It appears the only way to add images to a note from the web browser is copy and pasting from a different note.

I know this is a horrible answer but its the only thing that is seemingly possible.

  • I log into iCloud for Web on a Windows PC. None of my other notes have an image. I do not have access to any of my devices. I have an image on my Desktop. How do I get that image into a note?

  • @NimeshNeema Yes I know. But I don't think it is possible. The only way is C&P. You can how ever create a "Note" in pages, which allows you to add image.s
