Caption Photos with ease
Caption Pro can add captions created by typing or speaking to images and videos below the original content, thus keeping all your pixels unchanged. Images with captions in the pixels can be viewed in any application on any platform or in hard copy. Caption Pro also lets you present a selection of captioned images and videos as a slideshow. You have control over the display of each slide, rather than creating a video of all of the content. Captioning Photos is fun with Caption Pro.
Editing and Sizing Photo Captions
Text captions can be edited after application. If any detail of the caption needs amending, the entire caption does not need to be re-applied. The size of captions is automatically adjusted to fit them into the specified space. No more wondering what font size to use.
Two-Part Photo Captions
Two-part captions give flexibility and captions can be obtained automatically from a number of sources, such as Photo Gallery, Picasa and Windows Photos. More details here.
Add CaPtions from Existing metadata
You may have already added date, location or subject metadata to your photos with Picasa, Photo Gallery, Photos or native Windows. Caption Pro can turn this metadata from many different sources into visible captions automatically, allowing you to easily process multiple photos.
Use Another Image as a Sub-Caption FOR YOUR PHOTO
A sub-caption can be an image, or part of one . This ideal for artwork photographs where the artwork and its description may be a separate image as shown above. The back of an old family photo may included in the image.
Change Aspect Ratio of PHOTOS
Caption Pro can also adjust the aspect ratio of images so that they can be seen in their entirety even when the platform or hard copy constrains the aspect ratio of the image.
Caption PHOTOS IN ANY Language
Captioning can be in any language supported by Windows, including Asian languages.
What’s wrong with Adding CAPTIONs to PHOTOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
A picture may be worth a thousand words but a few words about a picture can add greatly to its impact. Social media recognise this. They all provide captioning and comment facilities for uploaded images. Face recognition can identify people in a photo once you’ve flagged an example. But problems arise if you want to move images out of their social media setting. You can download the picture, but you can seldom download any associated text.
Do you really want to write YOUR CAPTION over your Photo?
Phone and tablet vendors recognise the importance of adding text to photos, and all provide some native capability in their products. However, they all write on top of the photos. This may be fine for some images, but not for all of them, particularly scanned family photos. In the pre-digital area, annotations were commonly underneath a photo in an album, or on the back of individual prints. They weren’t written on the photos.
Why Meaningful File and Folder Names Aren’t Enough
If you use a personal computer you may have included information about pictures in file or folder names, or even in metadata. Many institutions advise this as a way of preserving information about a digital picture, but if you move the pictures to a tablet or phone, this information is not easily accessible – all you see are the pixels. Captions added with Caption Pro are visible on any platform – they are part of the image.
Swiping Through CAPTIONED Image and Video collections
Mobile phones have always had a seamless way of presenting images and videos so that you can step through them by swiping. Now you can do the same thing on a Windows desktop or tablet with Caption Pro. You can add fully controllable captions to each item without writing on top of anything. Caption Pro is a great way to share a selection of your travel or family photos and videos with your friends.

I am a keen photographer, both on holidays and around town. I have found Caption Pro a great tool for keeping precious notes with each photo. For my holiday photos they make a ready holiday diary. At the same time, being able to select individual captioned photos allows me to easily create a personalised collection to copy or email to family and friends.
I have also used Caption Pro to add captions to family history photos, and value the feature that the caption does not overwrite the photo and that it can be easily edited.
…an absolute gem that I have been looking for for years..
This is a program that is specifically designed to add text into a caption area below the photo. It’s very simple to use and does the job quite nicely. It’s commercial software but has a free trial period so that you can test it out. There is also a web version allowing you to caption photos that you upload.
