Re: [O] Export attached image files

Thanks for your answer Suvayu!

Sorry for being unclear. What I mean is that when I write reports or papers using org-mode and latex exporter it is natural
to take care in storing my image files in a structured way on my disk and use links in org-mode to incorporate the images
in my latex document. These image files will live on my disk more or less forever.

But if I write a note or some guide for myself regarding usage of some software, or the settings in my router, I would like
to take a series of screenshots, quickly incorporate them into an org file together with some text without having to rename
the screenshots with suitable names and organize them on my disk etc. I'd like org-mode to store the images somewhere
in a data directory as an attachment, but of course I'd like the screenshots to be incorporated in the pdf-file when I export it.

Is this possible?

BR / Johan

Short answer: not possible.

If you delete a file from the disk, attaching it won't help either.  Org
files are plain text, attachments are also stored as references.  It
would help us understand better if you could elaborate a bit on what is
your eventual goal?
