Hi, iPhoto allows for the use of a "title" (which is the text directly below a photo) and also a description (which appears in the info sidebar to the right of the iPhoto window). Photos will always retain their original file name unless you follow a couple of steps to use the "Title". For the description, you can "embed" it into the photo itself which can then be read by other apps which understand this photo metadata. open iPhoto Select (highlight) a photo or multiple photos Next, click on “File” from the top Menu Bar and then click “Export” from the list. Choose the “File Export” tab from the top of this new window. "Kind" should be “JPEG” or “TIFF” Under “Include:” put a check mark next to “Title and keywords” if you want your metadata such as title, description and keywords to be “embedded” into your the image that you are about to create in the export. For the “File Name“, choose “Use Title” if you would like the new image to be labeled with the title you gave it inside of iPhoto Click “Export” Finally, choose where you would like to save the photo(s), and then click “Ok”.

I sent one about 2 hours ago. I will send it once again: iPhoto allows for the use of a "title" (which is the text directly below a photo) and also a description (which appears in the info sidebar to the right of the iPhoto window). Photos will always retain their original file name unless you follow a couple of steps to use the "Title".

There it is! thank you.
Expert:  John T. F. replied 2 years ago.
You are quite welcome! If you have any trouble just let me know. John

So, I can now see the title on my photos, but I don't see the description or keywords that I wrote for these images.
Expert:  John T. F. replied 2 years ago.
No, sadly, those won't be immediately visible. As noted earlier, the description is embedded as metadata in the photo itself. It can be read can be read by other apps which understand this photo metadata but it won't be visible on the photo image itself. This is the same for keywords. For example, if you double click a photo and open it in Preview; hit Command-i. Select the info tab in the new window that opens and you should see the description and keywords. Other applications will have different ways of displaying this. John
