Question Edit Tags

Hello. . I take a photo, download to my computer, and save to a folder. (I use IrfanView as my viewer). The picture is now a thumbnail in the folder, when I pass the curser over the thumbnail, it gives me the photo information (size, dimensions, file type, camera type, etc)I think that is called a tag. Please correct me if I am incorrect. What can I do to to change that information to my own text. Is there a special utility that I have to use or can I edit windows. The reason for this is, I donate information to Genealogy Societies such as photos of Cemetary markings and stones. I have hundreds of photos with different family names. It would be so much easier for a searcher to pass their curser over the photo thumbnail to look for their family name than to open each photo and read the inscription. I may not be very clear on explaining this issue so please ask anything that is not clear. My OS is Windows XP Home, XP2. Thank you in advance

I'm thinking that a hex editor might do what you want..
Try this one..
http://www.hhdsoftware.com/Products/home/hex-editor-free.html for files up to 10mb.
This one; http://www.chmaas.handshake.de/delphi/freeware/xvi32/xvi32.htm can open files much larger..

You don't need any editor. XP has one built in.

Right click on the picture and select properties.

Select the summary tab.

Enter in a title and any comments you want.

Save the information (use the OK button).

Now when you hover over the file, the title and any comments will be displayed.
