    Hi! Does anyone know how to get rid of the image titles? I mean the name above each photo in my galleries. I think you can probably get rid of them individually (manually) but I’m hoping there’s a way to get rid of them all. I’d really appreciate an answer! Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is mjinthemirror.wordpress.com.

    Where is the URL to a post or page with a gallery of images embedded in it so I can see what you mean please?

    So if all you want to delete is “OFF THE WALL ERA” at the top of the page there is a workaround to do that, otherwise a custom design upgrade must be purchased.

    Click this link http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/
    scroll down to “Other options, special cases and tricks” and then to f. Tabs for static pages but no page titles on the actual pages

    I meant the individual image titles, not the section titles.

    Okay so let me get this straight. You want to edit every image and remove the image title which is part of the image URL – why?

    yeah like i said in my first post, i was hoping there was a way to avoid having to edit each image. i just don’t want random image titles, most of which are something like “image_22r8fjjw99dj” …

    Hi there,

    I’m afraid that you’ll have to go into your Media Library and remove the titles one by one.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/image-settings/

    Alternately, you might want to use the Custom Design upgrade to hide the image titles with CSS. This is the code that I would use to hide the title in the attachment page:

    .single-attachment .entry-title {
    	display: none;
    }

    The code, however, will not prevent the image title from showing up on your browser tab.

    Let me know if you have more questions about this. Thanks!

    It won’t help you for the images you’ve already uploaded, but for the future on your hard drive before uploading maybe create a site upload folder with sub-folders and use a naming convention like the post date to name the sub-folder. Inside the folder, arrange the images in the order you want to upload them and then rename the images with the post name, abbreviated if necessary. This also helps when looking in the stats to know which media was looked at.
