    I have recently found ZenPhoto and have successfully installed it to display my 11000+ image library. Unfortunately few of my images have titles and no have tags I can use. I have looked at the existing way of adding titles and tags and it seems a bit long winded.

    Having experimented with the Comments plugin, would it be possible to create a 'Title/Tags' plugin that allows a logged in user (ie admin or other nominated user) to add titles and tags whilst viewing the normal Gallery items in much the same way as Comments can be added ? This would give the ability to see a large or full screen image and add the necessary metadata as you work your way through the gallery.

    We used to have a "front_end_edit" plugin but it was removed years ago because of severe security issues.
    We kept it in our "Unsupported" repository for legacy reasons but it doesn't work anymore.(href="https://github.com/zenphoto/Unsupported/tree/master/plugins/front_end_edit)

    There are no plans to revive it but we always welcome 3rd party solutions.

    A possible route, right now, could be to use the admin toolbox (visible on the front-end when logged in) and click "Edit image" when you are on an image page.
    That will however bring you to the back-end edit page.
    There's also the "Bulk actions" dropdown (on the back-end) to add tags to items.

    For the future, the easiest would be to include the information in the image EXIF data. Zenphoto will extract that automatically.

    Thanks for the quick response. In between my post and your response I checked back on some older forum posts (should have done this sooner) and found similar responses and a suggestion to use XnView to manage titles/tags. A quick look at the current version of XnView does indeed seem to do all I want and does enable the titles/tags to be picked up by ZenPhoto.

    No further action needed.

    I would like the feature to easy "crowd-source" tags for a lot of photos.
