    Captions under Photos?

    Have about 15 photos (thumbnail size) that I want to put captions under, but for whatever reason I having a difficult time. Put them in tables at first, and that didn't work....

    Any suggestions? My code looks like this


    <img src="images/IMG_2776smaller.jpg" width="340" height="225" border="4px" color="white">
    <img src="images/IMG_2442smaller.jpg" width="340" height="225" border="4px" color="white">
    <img src="images/IMG_2393smaller.jpg" width="340" height="225" border="4px" color="white">

    <img src="images/shootingsmaller.jpg" width="340" height="225" border="4px" color="white">
    <img src="images/with-camerasmaller.jpg" width="340" height="225" border="4px" color="white">

    I generally use divs for captions

    <div style = "usually a border of some such type, and a background shade a little darker than the rest of the page, and of course caption text styling">
    <img style = "display: block">
    Caption here
    </div>

    What is the finished page going to look like? Depending on how the content is organized on the page, I may end up recommending a table (if the content is best suited for tabular data) or possibly a list (if it's list based content).

    Captions Under Images

    Hi Barnum
    I agree with the method that Chris uses for displaying the caption of the image, however I have another way which will allow the user know the image name when the mouse cursor is moved over the image and also display the title / Caption as well as allow the user to save the images (download) on thier disk. The Code is listed below :
    <img src="image name.extn" alt="[name / Caption]" height="120" width="140"></img>
    <caption align="bottom">[name / Caption]</caption>
    Regards and Thanks
