emailing images with captions
« on: September 19, 2015, 08:02:12 AM »
Hello,

I was wondering if there was an easy way of sending captions for multiple images in the body of an email when exporting from Photo Mechanic.

I am aware you can use the {caption} variable but this only displays the caption for one picture.

I’d like to be able to select, say, 4 pictures, export them via email and have each caption appear in the email in a list.

Can it be done?

Thanks,

Matthew

No.  All variables used in the body are evaluated one time.

If PM were to evaluate your variables for each photo, without the ability to intersperse the text and the images, it would be hard to tell which variables match which photos.
