Articles Images, Images

The EasyImageCaption plugin for Joomla generates captions from article images’ title or alt attributes and displays them below (or above) the images. An optional data-copyright attribute can be used to display copyright or license information for the image next to the caption.

How It Works

EasyImageCaption works out-of-the-box. After installation through Joomla’s extension manager, you just have to enable it, and all your article images will automatically show captions on front-end pages. You may however restrict “captionizing” to certain images or certain articles through the plugin parameters.

The generated source code is 100% valid HTML5 for maximum browser compatibility and smooth integration into your website. Captions will also work on responsive websites (depending on your template, you may have to add some additional CSS).

The captions can be styled individually through your template’s CSS file(s) or through the built-in basic style settings.

Easy solution of daily tasks

This decision, that I so long looked for. Earlier was to add captions to images on a site painfully long, now clicking of one button I can add captions to all images at once. It is simply excellent! The floppy and extensive functionality does this plugin not by the replaceable daily solution of my problem.

Cool app!

All I can say about this app is: It works great! Strongly recommend it.

Thanks to the developers!

This is an excellent plugin. Very easy to configure and works smoothly. But when I applied to an image in a K2 item it produced two captions and I didn't find a way to fix it. I know it wasn't programed to work with K2 (that's why I rated it excellent after all), but K2 is also an excellent component and it would be nice if this two extensions could work together.

Owner's reply: I have just sent you a CSS hotfix through e-mail. Thanks for the kind review anyway.

Great plugin!

Thanks so much to the developer, this is a really great plugin, I was afraid it wouldn't work on my Joomla! 3.1 site, but it did! and it just saved me so much time!

Easy to install and work with. I needed a modification for my site and Thomas helped right away. Thank you, this is fantastic.

This extension can make automatic captions for your images and this works very well. You can customize the look and set many options.

Just don't forget once to set exclusion and this plugin will do all the work.

I prefer this one over Joomla "caption" class since it's more universal and robust solution.

Very nice and easy to use plugin. What is most interesting - there is no other free or paid plugin that adds caption in Joomla images. Great job and keep on adding more features! :)

The standard of some Joomla extensions never ceases to amaze me, and Easy Image Caption is no exception.

It does what you'd want, how you'd want achieving a perfect balance of simplicity and functionality.

Another essential plugin.

This a simple and efective way to show captions. I'm using JCE and there is no incompatibilities.

Good work!
