The number of settings seems limited

Yep. Malsup’s jQuery Cycle plug-in is has a whole heap of options. We’ve just selected the most commonly used for this release. We will consider more options for further releases.

There’s a text field for each image I upload. What’s that all about?

You can use <?php echo get_post_meta ( $post->ID, 'upload_title_' . $i, true ); ?> to display the value of this field.

What are the shortcode parameters?

You can use [catapult_cycle width="100" height="100" pager="arrows" speed="500" timeout="5000" transition="fade"].

Where do I get more information and comprehensive instructions?

Take a look at the plug-in page on the Catapult site
