Adding Text to Images

How do I add text to a Media Gallery?

Recently a client asked me how to add text to images in a slideshow on WordPress. This is an example of a slideshow using the gallery from Jetpack. Hover over the bottom of the pic to see the caption.

But what if you want the text to be visible? I did some searching and found the Powr Media Plugin.

I added the widget here>>>>>>>>

To add to a post, you host the pics on Powr and use a short code. Not sure this a good option though, you have to buy the premium version, but it does have a lot of options to customize. Instructions are here.
