Captions and Categories for your hotel images are an important way to provide more information about your properties on the bookable partner sites. There are a couple of different ways to manage your captions and categories in VScape.
- When uploading images, VScape will automatically assign categories to your images based on your image name. If the category chosen is not correct or if no category is provided, simply choose one from the drop down menu.
It is extremely important that the correct category is chosen for the image as some syndication partners have a rating system for your hotel and incorrectly categorized images could negatively impact your score.
- To update categories in VScape, select an image and click ‘edit’. Select a new category from the drop down list and then click 'update'. A change in the system will trigger an update to partner sites.
- Descriptive and engaging captions are extremely important for showcasing your hotel online. Simply putting the caption of “exterior” on your hotel does not paint a descriptive picture of what your hotel is all about.
However by adding the caption “Boutique hotel in the heart of New York City” or “Stylish Hotel located on a picture perfect beach” is a much more telling story.
- While loading the image, you can easily add your descriptive caption for your photos or edit the images after they have been loaded. You can also edit all you loaded images all at once by simply choosing them all, clicking on edit and away you go! Captions and categories are key in telling a bigger picture of what your hotel is all about.
