Would it be difficult to add a feature so Photo Descriptions can be automatically posted in the Blog Entry with a Photo?
If you include this as an option (checkbox) in the insert Photo's box (like the Thumbnails option), then the user would have the option to include the descriptions or not. (It might not make sense for thumbnails, but for full size photo's, the description could be printed just below the photo?)
Just a thought, I don't think most of my readers are bothering to read the descriptions on photos - and I'm too lazy to type them in twice.
Sorry for not answering sooner.. it's not that I didn't see this thread.
I do agree this would be a nice addition. I'll add it on to our to-do list, but can't really make any promises about when it will be looked into more seriously. In general, something needs to be done about the way photos are included in blog entries, but what the exact solution is, I'm not 100% sure about. You're quite right that descriptions really should be shown though. Thanks for bring this up in any case - it's good to know what features people are missing!
Another thing I'd like is that when you post a full sized photo, (if the description isn't posted in the blog), someone can click on it and read any description that's been typed in like you can do with thumbnails). You don't need the feature to view the full sized photo, but it would be nice to see the descriptive info from within the blog, not just going out to the photo album.
It would also be nice if the text went around a photo instead of just breaking the text apart.
