This would help eg when choosing between different photos
Thank you very much for replying. I have looked in what i presume is in library view but cannot find it! There is a comments box below metadata, but apparently that is only for shared photos. PS I'm using Lr Classic (desktop). Thank you also to Marsha but still cannot find it. Am I looking in the wrong place?
Thank you again, most helpful, it really is. But I was thinking a more immediately visible text which could be part of the rating system - where you can say what you thought about the photo when the rating just doesn't explain it enough. Eg. 'too saturated', 'prefer this crop' and also notes to help you choose or recall what you were aiming for in your edits. I do that now with a separate set of notes but it would be better if the notes were attached to the photo. Very helpful when you go back to the photo when you forgot your thinking at the time. Hope that makes sense.
What i'm using myself for this is the Daisynotes plugin. It does not what you asked but i do mention it because of the use case. This kind of annotations i use mostly for a shoot, not indivudual images. So i want those annotation on my collections, smart collections and folders. This is possible with this plugin.
