Description

Image attachments may sometimes have associated data containing quite a lot of personal information. The personal data report shows a link only to the image itself. Would it not be more useful to show a link to the attachment page?

@joanne123 - can you give an example of personal data core saves in attachment meta? or are you thinking of particular plugins?

I'm thinking that if the image itself is to be recorded as being possibly personal data (and the new personal data export function does seem to do this), then so should any title, caption or description associated with it.
