You have the option of adding comments to your photos. These comments will work like DVD subtitles. You can turn them on or off with the "subititle" button of your DVD players remote control. You can also add up to 3 different subtitle channels, just like a commercial DVD having a different channel for different languages. Most users just use channel #1 to add comment to the photos.
