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.

Super plugin, Three Cheers!!!

Works perfect, easy config and looks great online.

As a newspaper journalist by training, I really missed a convenient possibility to add captions to pictures in my various Joomla sites.

This solution comes with everything I desire: Easy to install, easy to adjust, easy to use!

It will become one of my top-10-extensions I use on all my sites. Thank you for the great job!

Easy to use, straightforward controls, predictable results. Everything you are looking for in a plugin. Great job.

Nice job!

I'd like to express my thanks like this: Great work, easy to understand, highly customizable, worked out for me in 30 secs. This thing saves a lot of clicks!

What a beauty, hugely customisable and hackable to get it to do what you want.

Brilliant job, well done!

Exactly what I needed. Thanks :)

Very easy to install and configure. The support is good, also. I am using it on a racing cars website and it made my articles more professional and eye catching. The plugin can be configured both by experienced and basic users, but if you have any doubt on how to do anything, just use the author's forum and you will be answered.

Highly recommended.

I love it when an extension is simple and just works without fuzz. It has plenty of styling options for the text and it saved me from doing a lot of work. Thanks for this one!

As I didn't want to use the original joomla-captioning with javascript, i came to use JCE-captioning. While it does a good job, it's quite extensive to use for multiple pictures. So I was looking for an easier way to create captions.

Fully configurable by css-classes I got EasyImageCaption to work and look like my old captions in only a few minutes. Simply a great plugin!
