Caption allows you to display any text to accompany your images, such as:

  • Copyright information
  • Image description
  • Product details
  • … and more

The exact design of the caption depends on the selected layout as well as the styling defined in the Design section.

The Caption section is designed to handle both short and long texts. If your caption is longer than one or two lines of text (depending on the selected layout), it will not be visible directly, but only after clicking on a Caption button. This way, the Caption will never cover too much of the image:

In order to preview how the Caption will look like in an actual SmartFrame, you can click on the Preview button at the bottom of the page. This will open a full preview of the Theme, including the changes you’ve just made, even before you save them. Once you’re happy with the results, you can save the changes by clicking on the Save button.

Using metadata in the Caption

You can insert metadata into the Caption using the Insert Metadata dropdown. When doing so, you will also be able to add an optional default value in case the selected metadata is not available for a certain image. In the editor, it will look like this:

{{ description | Optional default value }}

You can style the optional value using the bold, italic and underline buttons in the text editor, and you can also add a link to it. Keep in mind that applying any styles inside the pairs of curly brackets {{ }} may break the Caption. For example, applying bold to only one of the curly brackets, like this: {{ description | Optional default value }}). In this case, removing the styling will solve the problem.
