Slideshow Extension, Image Captions

Postby bwklein » Fri Jul 23, 2010 4:14 pm

Is there a way to set text to be displayed instead of the file name for the caption of each image?

Thank you,
-Bryan

No. Not yet at least. If there's enough demand, we'll make this possible in an upcoming version of the slideshow extension.

It would be Great to have a file in the directory that is read which has titles and descriptions of the photos in it.
I am imagining a simple comma seperated or XML file.
That way you can just point to a directory and everything is read in and works without filling in forms like for the gallery extension.

Please have a look at this other post http://forum.pivotx.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1589&p=8456#p8456

I've submitted a patch to use IPTC comments embedded in the JPG files (just like in the dirgallery extension).
You can add IPTC description to an image with tools like XnView or Picasa (and others).

Best,

I would like to have this feature too. Is that enough demand? ;-)
