I have started using the software, after finding it most navigable and bug free, I am needed to know how to add a "descriptor" more efficiently to a set of photos, not just one photo-at-a-time. I started by pre-selecting a set of photos (lets say five or more). I then clicked on my newly created "Form", which I had pre-populated with my text in the "Image Id" field.

Now, I was expecting that my "Selected" photos would now have the "Image Id" field populated with the text that I had assigned.

But the interface only populated ONE (1) photo with my assignment text. (Not each and EVERY selected photo was given text at this point).

What is the procedure for adding a "descriptor" to multiple photos WITHOUT having to click, then populate one photo at a time ?

Hi,
When multiple images are selected then the descriptors do show the values of the FIRST selected image. A button to the left of a descriptor changes color to indicate if some of other selected images are a different value.

Consequently, when you enter a new value, it is only replacing the content for the FIRST selected image. However, you can press on that afore-mentioned button (the "Copy All" function) to apply the value from the first image to all other selected images:

This extra steps reduces the risk of accidental overwriting existing values in (what might be) a large number of selected images.
