    @UnderWordPress: We’ve duplicated this issue and added it to our issue list. It definitely should reset your meta. Did you add descriptions manually, or did you add them as meta data and the fields were populated when you imported?

    If the descriptions are in the meta data, I’m wondering if you can retrieve them by going back to the gallery selecting an image, and either clicking Import Meta Data or Recover and then Import Meta Data?

    Yes, I added manually written all descriptions to a lot of images.
    I tested it now on one image again.
    I’ve typed manually title and description.
    Than I’ve checked this image and let run “Set watermark”.
    When done title and description was updated to “OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA”.
    I’ve examined the original image. The string “OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA” comes not from EXIF, it comes from the TIFF header which is additionally in the header of the JPG (on Mac the shows this TIFF-section on “information”). In this TIFF header is a “title”-tag. It looks like NextGEN on upload put this TITLE value into ngg_pictures table column “meta_data”. And it seems that (if exists) a title value in meta_data overwrite the manually values of title and description while running “Set watermark” (maybe on other function too).
    That is what I have find out until now.

    Here is a screenshot from the TIFF header in JPG-File.
    Hope it helps.

    I have made a MySQL-Dump and open this into texteditor. I found in every “meta_data” column.

    From this origin NextGen overwrite the description and alttext.
    If there is no “title” in meta_data, the problem does not appear.
