Description 2 Caption


This plugin allows you to override the default WordPress behaviour
by which the IPTC caption of an uploaded image is passed to the description field instead of
the caption field of the uploaded media form.
The Insert into Post button then uses the caption in the Caption shortcode like this:
[caption] Caption[/caption]

This is not quite desired if you frequently upload plenty of images
with IPTC caption written in Photomechanic, Lightroom, Photoshop or any other tool.

The plugin has only one setting option which lets you choose
whether you want to copy or move the description to caption field.
