When you use our app to generate a caption for an image, we will upload the image to Google Vertex AI. Google Vertex AI will then process the image and generate a caption. The caption will then be returned to our app and displayed in the generated Markdown or HTML content.

If you opt out of the auto image caption generator, we will not upload any of your images to Google Vertex AI.
