I want to put some text to identify what the images are. For instance, I uploaded an 8 mg file of a horse that won the Canadian Olympics. I'm sharing these images with a designer that is working on a book across the country from me. We don't speak on the phone regularly so she needs to be able to identify the who, when, what of each of these. Using the image file name only identifies which chapter and a basic abbreviated description. IS THERE ANYWAY TO ADD TEXT /descriptor to images in dropbox?

Uhm, I'm surprised that this idea has received only 2 votes, including mine. How does everyone add description to a photo? Using the comment section?

I've got captions embedded in Lightroom metadata that took months of work for tens of thousands of old family photos. I can't use Dropbox photos as a way to share these photos unless Dropbox automatically displays these captions. Right now I use Lightroom to host these photos for an extensive set of family websites
