The Best Way to Add a Description (Caption) to Your Scanned Photos
My brother and I loved making blanket forts!
The description (caption) my Mother wrote on the back to be the storyteller for this photo
Ah, there’s nothing quite like reading a great caption to go along with a special photograph. Sometimes they’re so effective, they just seal the emotional experience of being there — as if you were right there when that photograph was taken — even if you weren’t!
I think it’s so important that you record these “priceless” descriptions as soon as you can. Some of us might think we can remember all of the details. But face it, you probably won’t be able to. They’re fleeting. And even if you could, you and your memory aren’t going to be on this earth forever.
With prints, it was easy to record this information by writing the stories by hand on the back. But, now that we are wishing to move our prints, slides and negatives to a digital form in our computer, how do we easily add this information so that it can live with each master image file?
In part 2 of my series on how to name your scanned photos, I suggested that the image’s filename isn’t the best place to save a lengthy description of your photograph. Strong and precise keywords for sorting and identification work best there.
See, the filename just isn’t the best place for a lengthy description
So then where is the right place to go hog wild and write all about your photographs?
Captioning Your Photos
The best place to add this information is actually a simple text field (box) that you type into and is then stored inside of your master image files. It used to be that only professional photographers and journalists had easy access to this “IPTC metadata.” But now, with even the simplest photo software becoming powerful, all of us can now benefit from this technique.
There are lots of lightweight graphics programs out there that can help you with this. But, since I am always advocating that all of us archiving our photo collections store and edit our scanned photos in “non-destructive” image managers, I’m going to keep things simple and show you how to do it in each of the four managers I think are the best.
If you currently aren’t using one of these programs, you might want to take a look at my article called “Use 1 of These 4 Photo Managers If You Care About Your Photo Collection” and see if you would be interested in trying one of them out for your own photo collection.
But Will All of My Captions Be Trapped in My Image Manager?
Absolutely not. Your captions will move with your photos where ever you want to take them. However, each image manager handles how and when the caption information is saved to the master image file differently. In the “worst” case scenario, your caption is stored in your image manager’s project database for safe keeping. And then when you “export” one or more images to use outside of the program, the exported image will then have this caption information saved inside of it.
If you were to then open up this new file in another program that is able to access IPTC metadata, your captions will be displayed! Cool!
Whichever program you use, I hope you caption your digital photos. Sure, it’s a lot more work. But if you don’t do it, really — who’s going to be the voice of all of these memories generations from now?
Picasa – How to Add Captions to Your Photos:
Place for caption
Caption typed in
Now what’s cool is you can set up Picasa to display your captions underneath each thumbnail. Go back to the Library view screen by clicking on the Back to Library button on the top left. If you don’t see the caption you just entered below its photo, go up to View in the menu bar and then at the bottom highlight Thumbnail Caption and then click on Caption from the list. You should now see your caption!
Thumbnail Captions Menu

Where to add a caption
Some of the themes while showing your photos in a Slideshow (really fun if you haven’t already tried it!) can display this caption information on top of the photo. Make sure you go into the settings (gear icon) while in a slideshow and put a check next to Show Captions . Then choose either Descriptions or Titles and Descriptions from the pulldown.
(Settings panel to enable showing captions during an iPhoto slideshow) The current version doesn’t seem to allow you to adjust font size or the amount of lines to accommodate a lengthy caption.
Lightroom – How to Add Captions to Your Photos:
Large Caption pulldown
Lightroom provides an almost endless way of displaying metadata underneath thumbnails in the Grid view and at the top of photos in the Loupe view . From the View option in the top menu bar, select View Options from the list. Use this Library View Options settings window to select any and all metadata you would like to display. It’s ridiculous how much control you have.

Aperture also provides an almost endless way of displaying metadata underneath thumbnails in the Browser view and under photos in the Viewer mode . From the View option in the top menu bar, select Metadata Display from the list. Use the Customize settings window to select any and all metadata you would like to display. Just like Lightroom, it’s utterly ridiculous how much control you have.

So did I forget anything? Does this seem easy enough to make you want to record the stories about your photos? I would love to know your thoughts after reading about this. Don’t be shy — it will only take a minute to write me a comment below. I would appreciate it.
I hope this will help you and your collection! Cheers everyone!

A 70-Year-Old Silver Surfer Scans Her Entire Life!
Being a man of action as well as words, my son Mark bought me a slide scanner and taught me how to use it. I scanned in the slides of the Holy Land without much difficulty. I was delighted to be able to view them on my computer with the same ease as I could view the digital photographs that I had started taking in 1999.
The remainder of the slides came first. Then I started work on the prints in the photograph albums that I had lovingly curated over the decades. The physical albums had started to deteriorate to the extent that some of them were falling apart. Scanning the prints was an ideal way to remedy this. I also scanned in all the prints that had not made the cut for the photograph albums but I had kept nevertheless. I also spent several months scanning in approximately 4,000 negatives. All in all I must have scanned nearly ten thousand photographs in one form or another.

How to Batch Change Titles and Descriptions in Photos for macOS
Last updated Oct 2, 2018 | Organizing Digitals
Have you ever wondered how to batch change the name and even the caption of multiple photos at a time in Photos for macOS, to the same information for all of them?
For example, you would want to do this if you had a group of photos all taken on the same day, during the same event, and you want to label them in a very similar way — if not the exact same way.
This is a very common need, and knowing how to do this in Photos is not as easy as it was in its predecessor, iPhoto.
Thanks so much. I have been able to record the comments my mom made on each photo while scanning them because of your post. ! Thanks very much.
GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “”Linux””, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.
There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “”Linux”” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux

FastStone Image Viewer for Windows allows you to add text to the JPG comments section of your JPG pictures. You can then run their slideshow or create a .exe slideshow file, and have the JPG comment displayed ON the picture in your font size, color, background color, and location.
I just starting using Lightroom and am learning the ropes. I’ve captioned and titled hundreds of pictures in LR that I would like to send out for online prints that I can share with my less connected relations. Will any of the online services use my metadata to print titles and captions on the back of my prints? It seems like an obvious feature for these businesses to support, but so far my search has turned up squat.
From what I read, Lightroom’s “Book Module” lets you create a Photo Book with captions either taken from individual photo metadata, or entered manually. Lightroom then allows you to send the results to a printshop, export the whole collection as a .PDF, or (critically) to convert the individual photos with captions to new .JPG files that show the caption under the actual image. The last option is the one I’m interested in. Has anyone used this function in Lightroom? Are there any simpler/cheaper alternatives for doing the same thing? See the following for a description of Lightroom’s Book Module:
The article really learns me a lot. Author introduces new tools and techniques that are very helpful in future.
Thanks for an excellent summary of products that allow one to add captions to photographs. I am not familiar with any of these
product, but it looks like almost anyone of them will do the job for me. I am starting on the process of scanning old family photos so that I have digital images to work with. My objective is to produce a DVD that contains the photos with captions to help identify the content of each photo.
I may have missed it or perhaps it is a standard feature of these products, but I would like to know if any or all of the products discussed here will allow me to display the resulting DVD of photos with their captions on a TV as well as a PC/Mac?
Thanks for a great review!
Hello, any idea on hownto do this on an iPhone right after I took the picture ? Thanks !
Hello again, looking carefully inside all comments, I saw you mentionnend iPhoto for iPhone and then the sqaured I for information.
I can’t find that on an iOS 8 device, is there still a way ?
I am really happy to have found this website. I am trying to do a big project this year, scanning and organizing thousands of family slides and photos and then making DVD copies organized by folders for family members. I want it to be well-organized and have information about the photos included. I have been looking into metadata, but it’s kind of confusing to me. I do use Apple (MacBook Pro) at home and have a PC at my work. I’m trying to avoid putting everything into iPhoto because I don’t want to use up all my memory storing everything there and obviously not all my family members are going to have Apple computers, so I’ve been scanning and saving photos to a large USB drive (which I’m terrified is going to suddenly stop working…I really need to back it up somewhere). I’m trying to figure out a way to get everything together onto one USB drive. I found it is possible to add metadata to a photo on a PC just using the desktop, no program needed. I was hoping that on my MacBook I could use the comments field in Get Info (Command I) to enter info and then I’d be able to see in the metadata field on a PC, but that doesn’t seem to work. Nor does the metadata I type on a photo using a PC seem to show up anywhere in the Get Info box of photos on my Apple. Do you know anyway around this without using a specific program? I guess if not, I’ll try the directions you gave above for Picasa, if they are still current in 2015. At least it’s free, and hopefully would work for my project. I just haven’t used it before. I’ve been playing around with the best way to rename my photos to see if that could help with organization and identification, but I haven’t settled on the best way, yet. I thought about using Year, First and Last Name (of oldest person in the photo) or something, but of course there could end up being duplicates of the same year and name and that won’t work. Maybe trying to rename every photo AND do metadata is a waste of time. Perhaps I should just set up folders first and skip trying to name each one. It’s a huge project and I’m a bit overwhelmed. If you have any suggestions, I’d appreciate them.
I’ve been thinking about your issue a few times now since we last spoke the other day, and I think I have a game plan for you, but it’s nothing too radical that you probably haven’t though of.
It’s really tough to make workflow judgements like this for someone when there are so many little decisions and determining criteria that will help determine the best coarse of action. Such as, you mentioned you have a PC at work, but do you want to use this PC at work for your photo collection? If not, should I even consider the PC into the equation?
Let’s start at the top of your comment. You’re right, iPhoto by default does keep all of your photos in one place, and often people run out of room on their internal drives because of this. But, 95% of iPhoto users probably didn’t even know there was a way to store your photos outside of a managed iPhoto library file. Additionally, they may not know that you can also use iPhoto and store your photos anywhere you would like. You could have some photos stored on your internal drive of your Macbook Pro, and have others stored on a USB external drive. And this is all done by just one setting in iPhoto’s preferences settings menu — but this setting has to be set BEFORE any of these photos are imported into iPhoto. It can’t be retroactively set later.
I made a short video tutorial about how to do this that you might be interested in watching: https://www.scanyourentirelife.com/iphoto-imported-photos-iphoto-library-managed-referenced/
More importantly, if you are just thinking about starting with iPhoto, I might suggest that you skip iPhoto because iPhoto is being phased out by Apple this year and is being replaced with the application simple called Photos that looks and acts just like the Photos application for iOS (iPhones and iPads). It’s going to be the application Apple builds up for the next 10 years or more I’m guessing, while iPhoto isn’t going to see another feature update ever again. The video above, that talks about the setting to use for storing photos outside of iPhoto, is exactly the same setting that’s used in Photos. So watching this will help you out just as much if you decide to use Photos.
The problem with Metadata with photos on our computers, is that often software engineers don’t think we need to view this photo metadata as often as a lot of us wish we can. You’re right! Wouldn’t it be great if we could just hit Command-I on our Macs when a photo is selected and just type in our photo caption!? But, sadly we can’t. This is because OSX’s Finder application (where you are hitting command-I) is setup to display file information. This is specifically metadata about the computer file itself, NOT the information about what’s IN the file which in this case is a photograph. So the “Date Created” metadata in Finder that you see, isn’t even the date that’s in the EXIF metadata as the data a photo was taken by the camera. Instead, it’s the date that particular file was first created, which may or may not be the date the photo in the file was taken. Does this make sense?
But, metadata IS the correct and best way to move forward Suzanne, even if you can’t easily manage metadata in the Finder application or even Window’s File Explorer (So yes, at this time you will need to use software to enter in metadata). Think of photo metadata like the “chip” that some people put under the skin of their beloved pets. Why not just write their identifying name and phone numbers on the name tag on their collar instead? Because, anyone can remove this tag or worse, just never even pay attention to it and keep the animal for themselves.
But, the chip is hard to remove and is an extremely fast and standardized way of identifying the animal across the country. The downside though, is that you can’t bring a found animal into just any pet store and say, can you scan this cute little dog and tell me who owns her? Because, chances are a pet store and even some vets, don’t have the scanning equipment to read the chip.
Photo metadata is the same way. Not all software can read and write IPTC and EXIF metadata, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the best method for the long haul to record your photo captions and your “date the photo was taken” information. IPTC metadata was standardized by the journalist/press community and has been around for years and years. Now, we just need to get more and more software to utilize it while we continue to invest our time and resources into entering in this data.
Going back to iPhoto, IF you plan on going back and forth to a PC as well as your Mac, I would suggest you do consider Picasa. There is an identical version of Picasa for Mac just like there is for Windows. It’s really really easy to use. As you stated, it’s free. And it’s owned by Google now which has a war chest of money that will keep this app going forever. And one of the best things about Picasa is that it’s “organic” — if you write a caption into Picasa, it immediately writes this caption INTO the master image file. So, if you load this image up into any other application that can read iPTC captions a second later, that caption will be there. AND Picasa lets you store your photos on any drive and in any folder you would like on your computer.
I just made a couple tutorial videos that could really help you out to understand how easy Picasa is to work.
As far as file naming, this is also very challenging to answer because a lot of people go at it from different angles. I personally think the best way to name a file is one of chronological logic that will always survive the test of time, and isn’t geared towards one specific goal such as insuring that dividing up photos to specific family members is easy over the needs of the entire collection as a whole.
I like the “year-month-day – description (location, people, subject etc) – added metadata” approach and have written about it in a 3-part series on my website that you might be interested in reading as well:
If you went with this naming approach, then if dividing photos up by family members is very important, you can use whichever software you decided to use, Photos or Picasa for example, to help you filter them by name. There are several different ways to do this, but it almost always uses keywords, tags, “faces” (facial recognition technology) albums and smart albums to quickly filter out photos into separate “folders.”
For example, you could assign a tag (keyword) to any photo one of your family members is in. You can assign that person to a Function key like F2. Anytime you see that person in a photo, you hit F2 and that keyword tag is added to the photo. Then you create a smart-album to show you all photos that has the keyword of “Bobby” (for example) added to it. Boom! There is an always updated (why they are called smart) album (folder) of all photos that Bobby is in. Then if Bobby wants all of his photos, then you just hit command-A to select them all, then do File>Export and send them out as copies to an external drive. (This keyword by the way, can and is usually stored in the IPTC metadata that goes along with your photos so it can also be read in other programs that can read IPTC metadata like this tag — cool huh?)
Now this is just one example how you could do this, and this may or may not work for you, but I hope it at least gives you an idea of how powerful digital organizing can be if you just free your mind to what’s easily available to you in today’s software.
Okay, so I kept you waiting all this time to write you back, so I hope I did you well by all that I typed. So Suzanne, just read this over and see how I can help you from here, because I know I didn’t answer all of your questions. But, hope just this much helps get you started.
