My only gripe about this otherwise good plugin is that you are not given the choice to display the title/alt text OR the caption. You can either display both or none. This means that the pop up image preview displays duplicate text if you use the same text in the caption as in the alt/title text. As busy developers we don't have the time to create two unique descriptions to avoid the duplication. Life's too short. Our clients who maintain their own blogs also don't have the time to do this. I have seen other users raise this issue and they have basically been blown off - told to create two unique descriptions for alt/title and caption. As a result we are now force to leave the alt and title fields blank (and they are vital for SEO) or turn captions and titles off completely. Surely it would a fairly simple exercise to add this one additional option in the settings? Otherwise, I am quite happy with the plugin, thank you.
