Ok, so I wanted to see if anyone had any ideas on what would be the most simple and effective way to do this.
Right now I have a simple gallery which runs from a php script. The script does not use a mysql database (hence the simple idea). Instead it just looks through a directory and makes categories from the folders and galleries from the images in those folders. As of now I simply use the title of the jpg image to form the caption (a little regex cleanup).
A request to add an additional description has posed an issue. I'm trying to think of a simply way to implement this w/o using a database. So the question is, where do I store the description data? xml? json? txt files?
