I wish to create an electronic family album covering three generations with ~1000 images.....on flashcard memories for each family member. Each image is to carry date, location, people and activities ~ 50 characters per image. IPhoto allows text for each image, but when I export the images to an external flashcard memory, the text is lost in favor of the original JPeg description. Is my answer in either iPhoto or Aperature??? Walter Weyler

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions.

    You will need to explain yourself a little more clearly, I’m afraid.

    Iphoto has no way to print text onto a photo. What you are referring to here

    IPhoto allows text for each image,


    is the Description Field in the IPTC metadata. This is written to the metadata on export.

    but when I export the images to an external flashcard memory...


    What’s an “external flashcard memory”? Do you mean a USB Flash Drive? If so, all you’re going to get on that are basic files.

    ...the text is lost in favor of the original JPeg description


    Do you mean the Filename?
