Enhancing Note Visuals with Obsidian Image Layouts

As an enthusiast of note-taking and knowledge management, I’m pleased to share a new addition to the Obsidian ecosystem - the Obsidian Image Layouts plugin. This tool is a response to the need for a more structured and aesthetically pleasing way to incorporate images into Obsidian notes. For more details, check out the GitHub repository.

Purpose of Obsidian Image Layouts:

The core idea behind Obsidian Image Layouts is simple: to offer a straightforward way to enhance the visual aspect of notes. It’s designed to cater to those who often use images in their notes and seek a more organized and visually engaging layout.

Features at a Glance:

  1. Multiple Layout Templates: Including image-layout-a, image-layout-b, etc., each designed to offer a distinct visual presentation for images in your notes.
  2. Support for Various Image Formats: Accommodates both local (wikilink format) and remote images (URL format), providing flexibility in sourcing visuals.
  3. Intelligent Image Handling: The plugin smartly manages scenarios of image overflow or shortage, maintaining the aesthetics of your notes.
  4. Experimental Masonry Layouts: A new addition to offer a dynamic, modern visual presentation.

For a complete list including visual examples, check out the GitHub repository.

Roadmap and Future Enhancements:

I plan to expand the plugin’s capabilities, with features on the horizon such as overlaying text on images, adding captions, introducing a general photo gallery, and improving user interaction with drag-and-drop functionality and layout selection tools. Keep an eye on our GitHub page for updates.


Obsidian Image Layouts is only tiny a beginning. I’m excited to see how it evolves and how it’s used. I look forward to your thoughts and how you integrate Obsidian Image Layouts into your note-taking workflows. Your feedback is invaluable. Suggestions for new layouts, feature enhancements, and contributions are always welcome and appreciated.
