Is there any way I can embed a link in Facebook image description?
I tried <a href> and [alt](link) tag, but it encoded it and showed the tag itself.

I want the link to be hidden by a word.
A simple link is allowed.

Is there any other way?

What about embedding the link and only show the text (applies to any post type in facebook)?

No. It is not possible to use special formatting in Facebook Photos.

Consider using a url shortener and vanity name for your links if you do not like the way they are presented.

e.g shrt.io/test

Otherwise, use Facebook Notes instead.
