Image Cards#82

V

It would be great to have cards that are purely represented as an image on the board.

– Use cases:
Mood boards, visual worlds, story boards, editorial boards, annotated photo documentation / album, investigation boards, link charts, etc.

– Explanation:
Currently the logic is to represent the (top part of the) actual content of the card. Images do not fare particularly well here (at least not yet).
Really, an image on a board in all kinds of practices works differently to textual / informational cards. And images work well in these contexts.
So, with boards and maps people often use the ‘picture is worth a 1000 words…’ logic, or images (sketches / schemas) as placeholder / cover / sprites / prompt which just needs to ‘sit there’, i.e. be present in the thinking space w/o need to click-through etc..
Even better with Scrintal: these ‘image cards’ could optionally be accompanied and subtended by further information (the ‘normal’ card content) ‘below’ – i.e. when the image is clicked / opened.

– Possible implementation:
The idea is not to get rid of the basic card logic, but to have an option to have certain cards (image cards :-)) represented / displayed differently / on the board visually (layout). Potentially, one could also think about certain specific board behaviors of ‘image cards’ (think ‘zoom’, ‘gallery’ etc)… but that would be luxury (think: 2024 :-)).
UI-wise it could be a tick-box turning a specific card into an image card; or – following the Scrintal-way – it could also be some inline-markup (a specific tag; or a variant like ‘!image’)
– Further the logic could be either to simply take the first image of any note card turned ‘image card’, or – even better –let the users chose a dedicated image. Or, best of all: combining both (1st image as default / fallback, plus option to chose / uplaod any image as ‘cover’).
– The title of the note card should still be visible (at least optionally, or on hover etc.), as to link the image cover to actual note content (on the visual board level).

– Possible extensions (further uses / variations):
This could also be used for album-like display – think: ‘album card (e.g. 2-4 front images representing an image series / collection in a card). And same ‘technique’ / aesthetics could be used for representing documents, like PDFs, presentations etc. via ‘covers’ (normally their 1st page)

I quite like this idea being a visually oriented person and very much liking Scrintal as a visual platform but I also have a concern that the current wonderfully clear and simple feel of scrintal boards could get disrupted by a mix of textual cards, text, and image cards.

So maybe an approach could be to have a command that changes the board view to display Card Title + first(or selected in-card-master -image) (where images are present) and then flip back to normal view otherwise.

In fact thinking about it ….. this reminds me of a function in ‘The Brain’ app, where a screen snap/image can be attached to a ‘thought’(=Card) and on mouse hover the thought expands to show the image/snap and then minimises down again as the mouse moves on. I always fould it very useful as a quick visual reminder of what a thought contains without the ‘Plex’(=Board) being cluttered up with images obsuring necessary words, titles and relationships etc. It also has a nice smooth expand / collapse animation which adds an almost ‘tactile’ feel to the operation.

Perhaps this method does not give the all images at once view needed for mood boards etc, but my own experience is that the act of persusing, choosing, inspecting (hover/expanding) and moving on is a curiously engaging and thoughtful one.

I love this idea and in my opinion a better representation of images on the board is must have because if there’s not such think eventually this might be serious blocker, it will be for me because I think visually so I’d love to have a board where text notes coexist with notes in which primary piece of informatio is an image or drawing without having to click on it to expand. The fact that I can see only half of the image on the card is currently what I most dislike about Scrintal, or even the only thing I dislike.

Simplest solution seems to be make images like weblinks are currently: their own object to be linked to and therefor can appear inline in cards OR on boards (and even searchable).

This can even be extended into any files later (pdfs, etc.) and would probably save space for people that link to files in multiple cards.

It would be great to rename a Web Link. WebLinks allows users to get to web page faster. Within a card, opening a URL takes more time (more clicks), but at least it can be properly labeled. I am using a Card for info and putting the related Web Link next to the card. Would be nice to put the Web Link item in the card or Grouped with the card for easy arranging. thanks!

The possibility of incorporating images into scrintal would be great. Currently, the possibility of inserting text in scrintal allows me to generate a timeline and organize the cards historically, in the same way, inserting images-maps would allow me to organize the cards geographically.

‘Under consideration’ ! I so hope this get’s through soon! Essential for me to stay using Scrintal. I’m switching to Miro still too often, where I miss my scrintal-cards :)

Seeing images is very important for me. I use mood boards a ton, so being able to cluster images together in groups on a canvas is necessary for me. I cant do this in Evernote (very longtime user) so been looking for alteratives. I thought Scrintal could do this but unfortunataly images only display as a strip at top of cards. Hopefully this will change. Otherwise Ill look at Miro or whatever else is out there :)

if “Gif” file Support : then i would like to paus and play induvidual gif in any frame as i like , also i can ennable and dessable all gif file to stop playing , sketch wow is a good example of dynimic animation it would be so nice if we could had one , all people get bored after working for so long in scrintal , we like to cultivate our cards for visual representation after doing the hard work we become a artist making our brain strome as beautiful as possible and dynimic as possible so even with a simple glanse we can sport our cards as quickly as possible (more reading leades to more hard working and getting bored ) less reading and
less rearching should be our gole visula representation should be our moto
