I keep a copy of the original photo with a name describing the content, such as John Smith 1942 or Smith Family 1978. I then edit the photo using a commercially available app and add text at the bottom of the photo, stating the names of the people or a short explanation and save it under a slightly different name. I can also enhance the photo using the same app, if needed. This way I have the original unchanged and a copy with a proper description/comment. I find it the best way to replace the old method of labeling photos on the back.
The app is installed on my smartphone, which allows me to start the labeling process as soon as I take pictures of photos held by other people, while I visit them.
