How to set image title using SmugMug api?

I sent the question below to SmugMug support, but they asked me to post here instead.

Hello SmugMug

I noticed SmugMug handles more photo metadata than before, namely it extracts title from xmp headers. Which is great. Can you tell me how to change the title using SmugMug api? I use a custom tool to keep my local and remote (SmugMug) photos in sync, I need to change it to accommodate the new field.

I looked here:
* http://api.smugmug.com/services/api/?version=1.2.2&method=smugmug.images.changeSettings
* http://api.smugmug.com/services/api/?version=1.3.0&method=smugmug.images.changeSettings

I know how to change the caption (description), but not the title.

Thanks for help
Marek

    Marek - did you ever get an answer to this? I too need to change the title with the API.

    Thanks

    I don't think that is possible in 1.3, since 1.3.0 predates the introduction of the Title field. It will be possible to alter the title with a PATCH request to an Image URI once the v2 API has been released, which I imagine is just around the corner.

    Thank you thnickdude! I kinda wondered if it might be in v2. Looking forward to it.
