Setting Media library title metadata from Live Writer

  1. Hi

    I'm posting to my WordPress (version 3.3.2.) blog using Windows Live Writer which, for the most part, works really well. What I have a problem with is what it does with the images I include in my posts.

    When I add images to my posts I always set the alt-text and title proprties within Live Writer. Live Writer correctly adds these tags in the HTML but if I look at the images in the WordPress media library the title and alt-text have not been set there.

    Is there anything I can do either in Live Writer or in WordPress to ensure that the title metadata I set for the image gets set in the media library?

    Thanks in advance
