You can create photo captions in Facebook to personalize the photos you upload to your profile or to provide a little bit of backstory to the content that you post. Fortunately, the captions you create aren't permanent. If you want to fix a mistake you made when entering a description for a photo, or if you want to update an existing caption to add new information, you can do so easily at any time.

Step 1

Log in to your account. Select the "Photos" link from the navigation bar and then click "Albums."

Step 2

Select the album containing the photos with the captions that you want to add or edit.

Step 3

Choose a photo from the gallery and then click the "Edit" button. Enter a new caption into the field provided, or make changes to the existing caption.

Click "Done Editing" to save your changes. Repeat the previous instructions to edit the captions on other photos in the album.


  • You can also edit captions by clicking the "Edit" button on the album page, scrolling to the appropriate photo and then entering the new caption into the text box underneath the image. Click "Done" to confirm your changes.
