The list of details available for browsing and editing depends on a photo service. Not all details can be edited.
For example, this Flickr photo has many details but only "Title", "Description" and "Tags" can be amended.

Once you switch to the edit mode, you can edit text fields. You cannot edit tags but you can remove tags and add new ones.
To finish your edit session click "Cancel Editing" or "Submit".
Most of photo services allow you to edit album details however not all details can be edited. For example, you can edit "Name" and "Description" of a Flickr album but you cannot change "Created" date.
Most photo services allow you to grant access permission at the album level only. However Flickr allows you to grant various permissions and set license for each photo individually.
Some photo services like Picasa and VK allow you to change album access permission.
