Setting Media library title metadata from Live Writer

  • Author

    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
