How can I make a digital photo album to share and show the captions?

Explorer | Level 3

I would like to create a digital photo album from a group of about 100 photos, to be shared with others on Dropbox. I would like the caption for each photo, which is stored in the metadata description field, to appear underneath the photo. 
Could someone suggest the easiest method to accomplish this?

Re: digital photo album


Hey @ralfswan, I hope you're having a good week so far!


To share a selection of photos with others, you would need to move (or copy) the photos into a folder in Dropbox so that you can share the folder.


If they will preview the files through Dropbox, they wouldn't be able to see the caption from the metadata.


Most likely, the easiest way for the recipients to see the caption would be for them to download the photos and use a local program to view the files that will show this metadata.


Otherwise, you could use commenting as a way to show a caption for the photos perhaps.


I understand that this isn't exactly the answer you were looking for, but please do let me know if you have any questions - thanks!
