Adding EXIF captions to a slideshow

Post by Nepper »

Summary: I'd like to display the EXIF caption somewhere as I go through the slideshow.

Background: I have spent hundreds of hours adding metadata to my images, and chose to do that within MSFT WIndows Live Photo Gallery because it embeds the metadata in the actual jpg file rather than creating an index. That way, the photos are easily portable.

In Photo Gallery, the field I entered the text in is called "Caption". However, when I display the EXIF data in XnView, that caption shows up as EXIF/Camera/Image Description.

FOLLOW-UP NOTE: I found the solution, but thought I'd post this anyways for anyone else having the same issue. In the "more options" I just typed in <Image Description>, and it works!
