I’m building a website to display genealogy-related family photos. Locally, my photos are named sequentially with a five-digit number, e.g. 00317.jpg, 00318.jpg, etc. If the back of a photo has writing on it, the next photo in sequence will be a scan of the back of that preceding photo. So I need my uploaded photos to be titled with the photo’s filename, which is the default WP behavior … sometimes.
For these old family photos, before uploading, I am using IrfanView to add a Caption to each photo’s IPTC metadata. This IPTC field consistently maps to the WP Caption field on upload.
My problem is that sometimes my uploaded photos are titled with the filename, and sometimes my uploaded photos are titled with the text from the IPTC Caption. In the latter case, the text from the photo’s IPTC Caption metadata appears in both the photo’s WP Title and Caption fields.
I have been unable to determine a pattern to this seemingly inconsistent behavior of assigning titles to photos upon upload. If anyone could tell me why this is happening, or where else to look, that would be most appreciated.
Downstream of this problem, I am using the plugin Enhanced Media Library PRO to manage media tags and the plugin FooGallery (Premium) to create dynamic photo galleries based on those media tags.
