Try this: 1) Site Actions -> Site columns -> Create -> Create Multiple lines of text (Rich or Enhanced rich) -> Ok. 2) Go to your Picture library -> Picture and Library settings -> In content types area click on Picture content type -> Add from existings site or list columns -> Select and add your multiline column -> Ok.

  • The second way: open your field in SharePoint Manager spm.codeplex.com and set RichText propery in true for your miltiline field
