Allow you to rename the photos and or add captions
Would be nice to have a very brief description/caption displayed with the photo
Laurie Becker commented
How can we do this on the frame or in the app if we don't have access to the web account?
Please use the EXIF data for retrieving/storing comments or captions (c.f. links below)
Please also allow renaming albums, in addition to renaming photos.
This feature is necessary to communicate information to photo recipients, especially the elderly, such as the location, subject, date, etc. Please consider adding this feature in the near future. Thanks so much.

would be most helpful to have. I have a great number of photos and need to be able to identify them

Using the subject of the email to add a caption is a help but doesn't really allow for adding dates, names and some brief details. Like many others I have purchased this frame specifically for my elderly father who has memory issues and a little more flexibility to add reminders of names etc would be really useful. If it had this feature, I think I would be seriously recommending to friends for their elderly family members.
Seriously guys... I have been a client since the early beginning, in China already... you were in advance on your time then.... and now.... just ad a caption management... any simple CMS is doing it... why not you ? And moreover, your system is bugging sometimes and switching caption between photos... so allow us to repair your bugs please...
You clearly never read these comments!! This feature needs to be included!! Owners have been asking for this since 2014!! Come on already!
Why hasn't this been addressed yet??? Critical for those of us using frames for elderly family members!!

This would be my first priority. With a lot of pictures it would help to identify them.

I agree with the previous comments. Please allow display album name or file name or captions.
Yes, please!!! I'd like to be able to name/rename photos, add captions and dates within the frame and via my web account.
I've set this up for my Mom, and she's not recalling the event, date, or who's in the photo. This feature would be extremely helpful for her enjoyment of seeing the photos.
When family visits, they, too, want to know who, what, when, where about photos they didn't upload, and weren't in.
I'm really surprised this wasn't a feature from the beginning... and that this post was posted 7 years ago and we're still without it being added.
Please add this feature!!
Please address this much needed feature, especially for those that have dementia. We purchased a frame for my grandparents and my dad. My Grandpa has dementia and is always asking who is in the picture and now my dad is doing the same. My dad asked me to please put the names of the people on there too. This has now been a request by so many for years. That's unacceptable this hasn't been addressed after all this time and frankly concerns me. Did we spend all this money on something that isn't being updated and will be obsolete and unusable. This will definitely be a con on my review. Please address it, as this is a much needed thing. Imagine what a lonely world it is when you don't recall who someone is until you're told, only to keep forgetting. When you tell them who it is they respond, "Oh, that's right". Please, please work on this as a soon to be update. An ETA would be great. I'm already looking to see if this is available with other frames to see if I should return the one I just purchased for my dad.

Change the Photo Details or Comments so that Dates, Places, and Names can be put in for reference. This is crazy that it can't be done.
Please compare this suggestion with a similar, but enhanced version I recently offered: Caption and Story Annotation
yes please!!! It's 2021 and we want to rename. I'm adding older photos today but it will have today's date, i really need to be able to rename!
2021--I would like to add captions to my pictures posted
I love my frame but would like the ability to name my pictures through the website.

It would be very good to be able to rename the photo file. Displaying the file name at the bottom is a handy way to identify the picture, so that is a good feature. But it isn't nearly as useful as it should be without the ability to change the name of the stored file.
Many senders can't rename before sending. Some don't know how or don't want to take the time. iPhone users can't rename picture the send from Photos at all (and sending is super easy to do) because of a software limitation.
Pictures received get a little nonsense text appended to the file name. It would be nice to be able to edit that away as well. Is there a technical reason why that text needs to appear? e.g. myphoto.jpg become myphoto-ekmq8t.jpg when stored in the Photomail folder.
The ability to rename the pictures on the site would be great. Being able to add details that are accessible from the frame with a details button would be greater!
