Photo gallery uses ImageDescription EXIF tag

When you use the photo gallery feature of the file storage area, previously photo comments would be taken either from what was entered via the web interface, or if nothing entered, what was present in the UserComment EXIF tag of the image.

As pointed out in this forum thread, there is also a widely used ImageDescription EXIF tag as well. We’ve now changed the photo gallery so that the comment displayed with each photo is:

  1. If you’ve specifically provided a comment via the web interface, it uses that (comments entered via the web interface are stored in our database, they’re not written back to the image file)
  2. If no web comment, it looks for EXIF ImageDescription tag first
  3. If not found, it look for the EXIF UserComment tag
