Working with images

Let’s create a regular card with an image:

image
How many people die from snake bites annually? #flashcard #nature
Around 81 000 to 138 000 
- per year 
	- Asia 50k
	- Sub-Sagaran Africa 30k
	- Latin America 2k

Almost 70 percent of bites were “legitimate,” an **accidental exposure from stepping on an unseen snake** or placing a hand near one during activities like hiking or gardening.

Notice the link at the bottom of the card includes a local image.

This means that we have two separate files — Flashcards.md and snake_image.jpg

NeuraCache needs both during the import to generate the card 👍

Importing files via “Import Markdown File”

  1. Copy files to your phone (.md and .jpeg)
  2. In NeuraCache tap “Import Markdown File”
  3. Tap three dots in the top right corner of the iOS File Picker
  4. Tap Select
  5. Select the .md file and the jpeg file
  6. Tap Open

Importing files via “Import Markdown Folder”

  1. Copy files to your phone (.md and .jpeg)
  2. In NeuraCache tap “Import Markdown Folder”
  3. Select your folder that contains .md and .jpeg

As you probably have noticed — the second approach is much simpler 👌

NeuraCache will traverse the chosen folder and extract all cards (subfolders included).

It does not matter where the images are — NeuraCache will automatically try to match them to their cards.

This is great for traversing your Note-Taking folders — like Obsidian vault.

Observing folder via “Select Folder to Observe”

The last approach is simply the same as “Import Markdown Folder” but on autopilot 👌

Select a folder — and NeuraCache will traverse the folder automatically in the background every ~6 hours.

You can force the traverse — by pulling down on the “Cards” list or by tapping the “Sync” button beneath the “Select Folder to Observe” option

Pro Tip

This is a perfect match for Obsidian iCloud vaults — which are synced automatically to your phone from your desktop — just point NeuraCache to it

Supported Image Links

NeuraCache supports standard markdown image links (local and web) and the wiki links (used by default in Obsidian). All links below are valid image links
