    I’m also interested in this.

    Do it in a custom slider styleheet. Relevant section is
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description { background: #000; width: 100%; }
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description h2 { font-size: 1.3em; text-align: center; }
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description p { text-align: center; }
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description h2 a,
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description p a { color: #fff; }

    Thanks for the reply – Can you elaborate on how this code would change, or what we would add? I’m thinking it would involve some kind of css for positioning, but I’m only an intermediate noob :-/ Thanks!

    I’m also interested in doing this.

    I tried to do it via css by giving the description box a negative bottom margin. Unfortunately, since the description is contained within the photo container, it gets cut off. Then I tried setting overflow to visible, but that messed up the cropping of the photos. I think the issue is more complicated than css because the description needs to be called outside of the photo container.

    Same problem- have tried with css, can’t get it right. If I manage to get the title below the image, the top of the image is cut off. I’m about to switch to another slideshow plugin, but I love this one 🙁

    I’m sorry, aligning the description below the image isn’t possible. It would be a good feature to have, so I’ll place it on the project board for a future release.

    An interim fix might be a way to make the black background of the description box transparent so only the white text shows over the bottom of the picture. If the text is a div inside the div of the description box can the background of the description box be made transparent?

    Great plugin. I know how to change the description box text characteristics, but what I’d like to do is not have the next/previous buttons behind it show through when the description box slides up. When that happens, you can’t read the description, only the photo label.
