    I just upgraded from the Note 2 to the T-Mobile Note 4. One of my favorite features of the Note 2 was being able to write on the back of a photo. So far with my Note 4, I can only figure out how to write on the front of a photo, which when you're taking vacation pictures, obviously defaces the photo. Can someone help me figure out how to write on the back of a photo with the s-pen? Thanks.

    I can't even imagine "the back of a photo", because the file contains the data to create a picture, it's not a piece of paper that the photo is on. Maybe the app you used in the Note 2 had a functioon that associated a text file "note" with the picture file.

    I confess that this nostalgic idea clicks some buttons, but I doubt it would be practical. Suppose that you find a software to do that, you wouldn't have a seamless sync to a photo library software on your desktop, for example.

    I've been wondering the same thing. I loved that feature on my s4. I hope Samsung did not remove that feature.

    And I came from the Note 3. I forgot what the function was called, but you could flip the picture over and write on the back of it. I found it very useful for vacationing. U take a pic, flip it to jot down things like bits of history, details, etc. I guess it could be done using the screen write feature, but it was better to scribble on the back of it. It appears to be gone because I've searched high and low to no avail. I hope one of you finds it and help us out!

    This was so intriguing that I fired up the S4 to see if I could find the feature. It is indeed there! Called "photo note" and is accessed from the menu key after selecting an image in the gallery. After annotating, the image shows a turned down corner..

    Now to try and find it among the settings on the note..........

    I don't see it anywhere. I just put a tag on the picture and then it is there when you rock the more info tab.

    I had forgotten about this on my S4, and never used it.
    I just checked my Note 4. Opened a photo. Tapped the settings dots, then 'More Info'. Selected "edit', then go to "tags". That lets you view/enter short tags, which is better than nothing.
    Great ideas, but I would always forget to use it. Geotags are useful to me, because they are automatic.

    You can either hit the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner or hold the recent apps key.
