5.2. Using Captions

You can also optionally create a unique caption for each of your pictures if you'd like. These captions are simply descriptive text labels, so you can be creative and even verbose. (Descriptive tags, by comparison, are typically short words or phrases.) You might add text such as "Doesn't Kelly look surprised here?" or "Bob finally made it to the top of the mountain!" It's up to you.


Captions are limited to 255 characters, so you technically can't add any text you like.

To add a caption to a picture or group of pictures, select one or more pictures and then click the Add caption link in the Info pane under the Caption heading. Add any text you like.

You can also add captions to individual photos if you've set Photo Gallery to display in Details view. In this case, you can simply click the Add caption link you will see next to the photo, as shown in Figure 19.

Figure 19. Captions can be added in Details view or via the Info pane.

5.3. Using Ratings

Another way to filter your images is to apply ratings to your pictures, on a scale from one to five stars. Pictures you really like could receive a five-star rating, whereas the duds might get one star. You can provide ratings via the Info pane or using two different thumbnail view styles.

To rate a picture via the Info pane, select the image you'd like to rate. Then, look for the Rating link and stars in the Information section of the Info pane. To give a picture a four-star rating, for example, click the fourth star, as shown in Figure 20.

Figure 20. Ratings provide a way for you to grade your pictures.

You can also apply ratings directly to thumbnails if you configure Photo Gallery to display in Thumbnails with rating or Details view. In these cases, the ratings stars will appear below, or right next to, each image thumbnail.

As you should expect by now, you can select multiple images and apply ratings to all of them simultaneously. To remove ratings, right-click one or more rated images and choose Clear rating from the pop-up menu that appears.


Thanks to improvements to Windows Explorer in Windows 7, you can also add or edit metadata to photos and other files directly from the shell. To do so, select one or more image files in Explorer and then note the Tags, Rating, and Title entries in the Details pane. (The Title entry is the same as Caption in Photo Gallery. Ah, the consistency of Microsoft software products.) You can edit these items directly from this location if you'd like.
