Press the G key - so you're in grid view.
Select the images.
Enter the caption in the Metadata panel.
Nope. That is NOT the correct answer. I just did it and it didn't work. Any other ideas?
It IS the correct answer.
Go to Library - Grid.
Select all those photos which need the caption.
In the Metadata panel type your information into the Caption field
Exit the field.
Folks, I wish this was the answer but it simply is not. I just did exactly what you suggested and nothing is added to anything but the first image I select -- all the others selected remain empty. Not being contrary -- I am on a deadline -- but no, this is not the solution. What am I missing?
Do you receive a warning saying that you are "Apply the Metadata change to all of the select photos warning"?
go to the Metadata menu and uncheck "Show Metadata for Target Photo Only"
does that fix it?
I will dance a jig at your wedding! Thanks -- that did the trick. I knew it was something that was obscure like that.
