Obsidian Mobile version: v1.2.3 (57)
When taking a screenshot of my iPhone and sharing that to Obsidian, a new file called
screenshot is created without extension. It should have the
.png extension. Otherwise, the file isn’t recognized by Obsidian and isn’t displayed properly.
I don’t think they are PNG.
file screenshot and got:
screenshot: PNG image data, 828 x 1792, 16-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced
This is when sharing from an iPhone Xr running the latest iOS 15.5
Btw, it would also be greatly helpful if
screenshot were automatically renamed with a timestamp to more easily differentiate, e.g
screenshot 2022-07-02T184616Z.png, as macOS does.
Steps to reproduce
Take Screenshot on iOS and share it to Obsidian via Share Sheet.
Obsidian asks to import “Screenshot” into vault → Selected
Obsidian Messagebox “Success” with Options to insert link into note → link gets inserted.
No image file is listed in File Explorer and the inserted Link is “Screenshot x” without a file extension.
- Operating system: iOS, Obsidian Version 1.3.1
iOS File Manager show the screen shots getting saved without an file extension.
Sharing a picture via Photo to Obsidian works as expected.
Just ran into this using Obsidian v1.4.1.
Everything exactly as @obsequious and @pcs mentioned.
- sharing from the iOS screenshot UI is fine to other apps (i tried notion and one drive) and it’s a .png.
- sharing from photos.app to obsidian works fine (screenshots show a .png and photos a .jpg in obsidian)
