How do I add image information and meta data to my photos?

Note: Image file metadata (from photoshop, lightroom, etc) does not auto-import into the image’s Title, Description, Tags or Photo Credit fields of the image details. This data must be manually entered via the website editor. 

Adding information to your images is important for both the viewer as well as your site's overall SEO.  The easiest way to do this is from your Images collection

  • Select Content
