I have tried using this or orgmode at various points, but I haven't been able to find a good workflow for linking images/screen shots with notes (which I do quite often in Evernote). I use vim as my primary IDE, so I would love to find a solution for image links to let me use VimWiki as well.



Not sure what you mean by workflow, but you can include images like this:

    {{file:../../images/image.png}}
    {{http://example.com/image.png}}
Vim is of course not able to display images, but they appear when you convert the wiki page to HTML.


What kind of workflow do you mean? Simply taking a screenshot and inserting a link to it would be pretty easy, at least in Emacs

  ;; There probably are better solutions already 
  ;; available somewhere.
  (defun org-insert-screenshot (filename)
    (interactive "sFilename: ")
    (let ((filename (concat filename ".png")))
      ;; import is from ImageMagick, change to whatever you like to use
      (call-process "import" nil nil nil filename)
      (insert (format "[[file:%s]]" filename))
      (org-display-inline-images)))


What's ur vimrc like? I'd love to peek!
