Adding a caption and tooltip to the picture


How to add a caption and tooltip to a picture being exported for use on a CMS.

Adding text

Click on Caption to add text to your picture

If you would like image text to appear as an overlay on your published picture, enter the text in the Caption field. Use the drop-down list to select any text stored in the file as metadata. The list displays the field number and a preview of its content. You can add several fields if necessary. Each will be represented by a value (e.g., #080), and you can space these by adding a comma and a space between the fields, for instance.

The text you enter in the Tooltip is displayed when hovering over the picture when embedded in the CMS. You can select values from the drop-down list or enter a custom tooltip..

Note: Caption and tooltip features are only available if you embed the complete output iframe code from FotoWeb. By simply embedding the image URL you will lose this functionality.
