The Metadata Information contains the following:

  • Title - The title of the specific photo or video.
  • Description - Add context to the media by sharing a story about that moment.
  • Caption - A caption can be added to the photo which will display during a slideshow (see How do I create a Slideshow?).
  • Date  - The date the media was captured.
  • With - A tagging capability where users can add people who are included in the media, but whose faces may not necessarily be detected. This is commonly used to tag people in videos.
  • Created By - Add one or multiple creators or authors to a project. This will add the media to each user's Created By tab under their Portfolio page (see Portfolio).
