By Sabrina, 20 November, 2023 Forum iOS and iPadOS "I alwa&s take photos with my phone. Problem is that even with the descripsion I still have issues identifying them. Is there a way to write so I can see that in the photos app or anywhere? Options Log in or register to post comments Comments If you want to write a word… If you want to write a word on your photo from the Photos app select your image and at the top margin select Edit and at the top margin there is a pen symbol that you select and at the bottom there are adjustments for pen size and color. Hand write your description and hit Done. If you open the image in Snapseed, a free photo editing app, there is a feature where you can type in text. It's a convoluted process It sounds like you want to rename the photo files directly in the app. You can't do that, unless they've changed it in the last few updates, and you have to use the Files app to do this. You have to open the picture, then share it to the Files app, and add the new name in the process of saving it. Then you go to the Files app, find the photo with the new name and share it back to the Photos app, so it will be in your camera roll. Maybe there's some other, easier way that others know of, and I'd also be glad to learn it. Have you tried the twice-two-fingers long press? Hi, I don't know if you are already using the labelling using the gesture of double two long finger press over the photo to label it, at least I use that in order to identify my photos, and it remains there everytime I change my devise, but I don't know if that is not enough for you. HTH Could you not just add captions with brief description? Hello, couldn't you just add a caption iwth a brief description of the photo? You could also have Be My Eyes help describe it. caption Okay the caption seems great but where do I see them when I have added them? Info tab As far as I can tell, the only way to read the text of a caption you've put on a photo is to go back into the info where you add the caption and swipe to the field where you insert the caption text. Voice Over's description feature is not working for me in the photos app, so I have no idea if that reads the caption. I put the word "Test" as a caption on a photo, then shared it with Seeing AI. It said the text on the photo was the word "Four." It did, however, describe the photo reasonably well. It might work better to change the file name with the process I described in my other post, or use Voice Over's label feature, as Karina Velazquez described.
