How does TITLE get assigned?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Terry Pinnell, Feb 9, 2006.

  1. In an XP folder containing JPG images, if I hover the mouse cursor
    over most thumbnails I get a box displaying Dimensions, Type, Size.

    But on a few of them, I get an additional line, 'Title'. Here's an
    example:
    http://www.terrypin.dial.pipex.com/Images/Title1.jpg

    That's unfamiliar to me. It seems to be the entry in
    Properties>Summary>Title. But what rules apply here? Why does that get
    assigned for some files and not for others?

    FWIW, I created that file by opening an existing JPG in IrfanView and
    adding a few text captions.

    It depends on the device/software creating the file.
