    This is something that is actually already possible to do, since you can fully customize the slideshow’s CSS.

    Most users were confused by this “big bar” they saw on the right-hand side of their slideshows, so I decided to move it down and have it pop up as users hovered over with their mouse.

    You can get the effect of the old descriptionbox by setting the slideshow’s style settings to custom and editing the following class:

    .slideshow_container .description {
    	margin-left: 200px; /* This is how far you want the description to be pushed to the left. */
    	width: 200px !important; /* This is the width you want the description to be. */
    	background: #000;

    When you’re done, set the height of the descriptionbox equal to the height of the slideshow in the settings.

    If you want it to always be visible, not just when a user hovers over, set the ‘Hide description box’ setting to ‘no’.

    I hope this answer is satisfying for now. I may at some point add it as an option, but that probably won’t be anytime soon

    Many thanks and great service. For me being able to balance the image with a Bold graphic text made the slideshow. It became more of a banner which suited me as I use it instead of a typical jquery slideshow.
