Editorial Workflows

Upload & Insert Image

public workflow

Install Workflow...

This workflow contains at least one Python script. Only use it if you trust the person who shared this with you, and if you know exactly what it does.

I understand, install the workflow!

This is a workflow for Editorial, a Markdown and plain text editor for iOS. To download it, you need to view this page on a device that has the app installed.

Description: - Prompt for image selection from the camera roll.
- Save selection as as a jpeg.
- The image is saved in a sub folder relative to current folder. (Default is 'imgs', you may change it)
- Preserve the original image orientation.
- Insert a markdown image reference.

I forked and modified the plugins from the following two workflows which either didn't have the relative folder feature or did not working for me(infinite running).
