    Hi Asic,

    Thanks!

    I'm sorry, that's not possible yet. Not very easily, that is. Below I'll show you how to put the caption under the images. An easy way to do this will probably be available from version 3.0.0. That's a long time from now though.

    First, go to your slideshow and set its style settings to 'custom'. Now you can edit the custom CSS. If you, for instance, want to have a 50 pixels high description below every image and your slideshow is a total height of 200 pixels, you should set the images to be 150 pixels high:

    .slideshow_container img { height: 150px !important; }`

    The '!important' declaration is here so the slideshow script won't override this setting.

    Next, you probably want to disable the see-through descriptions. Otherwise your descriptions would appear grey, although you may have set them to black. To do this, simply delete these lines from the custom editor:

    .slideshow_container .transparent {
    	filter: alpha(opacity = 50);
    	opacity: 0.5;
    }
    
    .slideshow_container .transparent:hover {
    	filter: alpha(opacity = 80);
    	opacity: 0.8;
    }

    Now, you probably want to go down to the slideshow's settings and set the 'Height of description boxes' setting to 50 pixels. Lastly you should set 'Hide description box' to 'No', so they will always be visible.

    This will put the description boxes below the images. Putting them above the images is a bit harder.

    I hope this helps!

    Best regards,
    Stefan
