"Cutline" is jargon for "caption," the text accompanying a photo.

Newspaper cutlines are usually written by copy editors with information supplied by the photographer. The type style is usually a sans serif.

Cutlines are normally written in present tense.

They should generally identify everyone recognizable in the photo. People are generally identified in order from left to right. But exceptions are made, for example, if a specific person is more prominent.
