Hi, 
I read previous forum topics on Live News: Headline and Caption but can't find answer am looking for.. 

- Where do 'Headline and Caption' shall be written to? 

 

Sorry if my question sound funny, but after I drop my picture for upload via My Dashboard I have only one option to choose from - Title (only). There is no other option I could see. What do I do wrong? Where to write Headline and Captions for LiveNews upload?

Headline and Captions should be written with whatever software you use, before you upload.

Am with Safari 11.0.3 and software can use Lightroom or Photoshop.

 

I never used PS or Lr for Headline & Caption before. Is this where it shall be done?

I searched youtube but can't find Headline & Caption topic for PS or Lr.

In PhotoShop, under the File Menu, go to File Info. It will bring you to a panel where you can add Headline, Description (Caption) Keywords and other IPTC Information.

Lightroom has a similar panel in the Library module but Headline and Description aren't always visible.

If you scroll right to the bottom of your dashboard page on Alamy, right down at the bottom in the blue area under 'Selling on Alamy' there's a section 'Sell Live News'.  If you click on that, point 3 on the left hand side tells you about adding captions, headlines etc

I use Lightroom.  As fotoDogue says, under the Library module in Lightroom you can add captions etc using the Metadata section.  

Where Alamy refer to adding a headline - when using Lightroom this goes where it says 'Title', and the Caption goes as you'd imagine in the box marked 'caption'.
