Add image title, description etc. to featured images

    I always fill out meaningful image titles, descriptions etc – all the fields that wordpress.com provides in the gallery image.

    Some of this is shown when I paste the picture in a post, but NONE when I use the picture as a featured image.

    I’d like this info to (optionally) show up wherever the images are used, or at least when they’re in full screen (on the landing page) or used as the header.

    I understand that this is more of a feature request then a support issue, but I’d still appreciate if if you could consider it.

    This is especially important, if, for example, some image license (say, CC BY) requires you legally to add some information WHEREVER the image appears.

    Many thanks!

    Ps.: Any chance wordpress.com will ever come out with some proper licensing support? That would be superb!

    The blog I need help with is qmethod.org.

    Hi there,

    I think it’s an issue with WordPress.com platform and you suggestions are super nice. I am tagging here them and they’ll surely consider.

    Have a nice day, Cheers!

    maxheld – thanks for the idea, it’s a good one. I’ll pass it along as an enhancement suggestion.

    Hi Kathryn,

    Would you mind to move this to other forum as this thread is about WordPress.com suggestion forum.

    Thanks a ton.

    mkrdip, sorry, but it’s not possible to move this to the General forum as those are on a different bbPress install. Do feel free to mark it as resolved, though.

    @kathrynwp, that’d be a great feature.

    Ideally / perhaps with some clever flickr / stockphoto etc. integration so that the requisite licensing information is *automatically* included?

    I know that’s a lot to ask for a feature, and a bag of hurt, I’m bringing this up b/c (at least in Germany) a LOT of wordpress.com users have been hit with (nuisance) copyright lawsuits (on CC BY-SA licensed stuff!), especially on themes that do make extensive use of background pictures without possible attribution etc.

    I understand! I think if you need to be that careful you’d want to watermark the image with a credit in a graphics program. I know that’s a bit cumbersome, though. In any case, the suggestion is logged for consideration, thanks again!
