The metadata you document in the settings area are templates. You need 
to apply them to the pictures you want. This does not happen automatically.

1. In the main window select 1 or more pictures; then
2. select the "caption/tags" icon in the right sidebar; and then
3. select the "Information" tab; and then
4. select the template you want to use from the drop down list; and then
5. click on the "Apply" button

As noted above you can apply you templates to more than one image at a time.

Cheers Simon
