When you are using the above what information do you put in the Caption and Headline boxes? To me they seem to be the same.

Where do I put the description and title of the image, what words go where. Should headline be used for a breaking news story?

A lot of this depends on where you are sending the image, as different agencies may use different fields. Find some general guidance here on the deeper descriptions of the fields:
