I feel that I should know this, and perhaps the answer is buried somewhere in my brain, but how do I add a caption to photos? Would like to add captions to some of the pictures I posted in various categories.

I would also like to see others add captions. There's way too many photos to individually ask each poster what the plant is in their pictures.

When you upload a photo to the database, after you check off whether it's the entire plant, bloom, leaves, etc. ... scroll down a bit; I think it's the last item that says "Add a caption for this photo" or something similar. Smiling

Type a few words, then upload picture. Then you can add more words to top of picture, picture will move down on its own.
Or you can type words below picture.
I hope that's what your asking.

Not quite what I'm asking. I do know how, and have done so, have a caption when I'm posting a picture. Here's what I'm wondering about.

If you browse through any of the categories in the recent photo contest you'll see where some pictures have a comment at the top saying that a caption had been added by the photographer. Right below that statement will be a box with the caption.

I'm not seeing anything like that when I browse the winning photos. Can you post a link to one of the photos you are referring to?

Will see if I can from my phone. Else I'll actually have to get up and go all the way to my desktop (ah, poor me) to post a link.

Aha, I think I see what you mean now: https://garden.org/apps/photoc...

Some members submitted captions to their photos when they uploaded them for the contest but they didn't show up until after the voting ended. It was done that way by admin. so that fair voting could take place. If captions appeared, we might be able to figure out who submitted the photo.

Ok. Can't give you a link but can point you to some examples. Go to where all the contest photos are posted. Might as well start at the top and click on Annuals. As you flip through a few of the pictures, maybe 6 or 7 (didn't count) you'll see what I'm referring to. Caveat is that the whole thing, statement and caption, is in the little aforementioned box.

I figured admin did that and for the reason you mentioned. However, I posted a picture in the Fall Pictures gallery with a caption. I also submitted that same picture to the contest. Now that the contest is over, I can see the picture (a runner up in Trees) and no caption. Maybe it has to do with the Fall Pictures existing in a gallery? And no, I don't know which place I posted said picture first. Suspect it was in the Fall Pictures.

I can go back to find where it is.

We cross posted but yes we basically agree. What I'm wondering is if I can add a caption now.

Guess I could always start a comment (thread? post? whatever it's called.)

Find your photo in the database and click to open/enlarge it. Scroll all the way to the very bottom of the page and click on: "Edit this image's caption, details, etc." (next to last item) Type in what you want to say in the caption and then click on Finished. Smiling

You can't add a caption the images in the Photo Contest entries, that had to be done when they were first uploaded but Lin gave the correct answer for the database images.
