What is the Description field when uploading images? (3 posts)

    Could anyone please explain the use of the Description field which appears when using the built-in image upload function in WordPress?

    I can see that Title = Alt Text but can't see where the Description field text ends up.

    Thanks.

    One example of its use:

    http://guff.szub.net/2006/01/29/woof/fire-dog/

    That is an (image) attachment page on my blog. See the text below the image? That's the description. Consider it the 'content' for an attachment.
