How do I add captions to my photos?

Updated: 05/21/2014

Captions tell your visitors everything they want to know about the photos they see. Write an epic tale, or just jot down where the photo was taken.

They also boost your findability. Search engines look at the words you've entered there, so be descriptive if you want to be found.

Caption Your Photos

To add or edit the caption on a single photo, click the Caption or Pencil under the photo in SmugMug style or in the Lightbox to add a caption. 

Click the wrench button to access the editor tools.  Click Open in Editor and then Title and Caption.

Add the title and caption information you want, then click Save to save the information you’ve entered.

Captions will show under the photos after you refresh the page.  

Got tons of photos? You can add a slew of captions all in one go.

Go to the Organizer. Select the photos you want to add captions to, then click the wrench icon > Title and Captions.

If your photos have any existing captions that aren’t identical to each other, you can choose to replace the current captions with the new info you enter, or add your new info before (prepend) or after (append) the existing captions.

Gotcha: The original filenames of the photos are displayed under the thumbnails for convenience, and cannot be edited. Also, titles cannot be added in bulk to multiple photos.

Your caption may be up to 65,000 characters long, so go ahead and tell the whole story.
