If you've got an Apple, Mac, or iOS tech question, we've got the answer. In this week's Ask, we explain how to add captions to printed photographs in iPhoto.
Using the latest version of iPhoto in Mavericks, how do I print a photo with a title or caption printed below it? This was possible to do this in earlier versions — I could do it in Mountain Lion — but I can't figure out how to do it in Mavericks.
You can still print captions on pictures when printing photos from the iPhoto application in Mavericks. The process, however, is a bit different than it was in previous versions of iPhoto.
To begin, select a photo, and then click File > Print (or press Command + P with a photo selected). Once you’ve done that, select the Contact Sheet option from the print theme panel. This will give you the ability to place various items of metadata associated with the photo in the captions area that appears below the printed image.
In iPhoto 9, select the Contact Sheet option in iPhoto to get access to the captions panel and add text beneath your printed photos.
To edit what shows up in the caption section, click on the Captions button that appears below the drag handles that adjust the photo’s size. In this panel, you’ll be given control over exactly what photo metadata is added when you print the picture.
