What does the use of the Title and the Caption fields in the Properties Area?

Christian, these are VITAL for search engines for content on a website etc.
The themes can display these or you can opt not to show them, but if your website has only pictures, no one will every find your work.

I use the Lightroom publishing plugin and I keyword every photograph, I add titles and captions to each picture and when the publishing is done I tell Lightroom to rename every photograph

{title of picture}-hamishNIVENPhotography-filename.

So each photograph has my name in, has a title and in the data stored inside the picture is the description.
If you put the title and description into the pictures in lightroom, Koken takes all this information from the files and fills the title and description spaces in Koken with the information. It also puts the keywords in as tags - VERY useful.

Does that help?
