    I miss these options in the new Lightbox, they were available in the older version. Now, there is no control.

    I have this in my post, it has alt, it has title.

    <img src="http://www.astrasuite.com/astrablog/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/vox-olympian-1-600x400.jpg" width="600" height="400" alt="Living Voice Vox Olympian" />

    When Lightbox pops up it shows the caption as :

    Not very professional showing the filename instead of title, or alt.

    For images from Nextgen, it's ok ...

    Problem is still there in the last Beta version if you use pic stored in Media library, the name of the file is used. With pic from external link, it works and title is used

    You may want to check the image in your media library, as WordPress uses an image's file name to generate a title if no title is set by the user.

    SLB uses the title field's value from the media library whether it is set manually or generated by WordPress.

    If the issue you are experiencing is different than described above, please add to the existing ticket on GitHub. Make sure to review the instructions on reporting issues so that your issue can be properly evaluated.
