You can add a title and description to images in your gallery.


To add a title and description: Click the gallery to select it > from the pop-up menu, click Organize Images > click the relevant image > under Title add the title > under Description add the description.

Note: The title added to the images in your gallery will be used as the alt tag for these images.

You can find more information about galleries  here .

      That is of no help at all.  Not looking to add text to a pic when you mouse over it but embeded on the pic all the time.  In any color or size font I want.  In a gallery with a differnent pic with writing on it all over each one rotating every 3 sec.

      Unfortunately this isn't possible at the moment.


      We document and learn from every feature request and bug brought to our attention. These objectives are immediately high priority milestones in Wix's product road map.

      Feel free to add your feature request to our Wish List by posting here.

      In the meantime the best solution I suggest is to add the text to the images outside the editor and upload the pictures to your site with the text pre-embedded.


      Let us know should you require anything else.


      All the best, Dean - Wix Team

    I have the same question as Kimbe761 above: is there a way to make the image title appear all the time...not just when the mouse is rolling over it? Thanks!

    @lsprung, Unfortunately we do not have an Image Gallery that displays like the Product Gallery when expanded. You can however choose from different gallery skins when customizing your Gallery, so you can get the closest look possible. To learn how to do this, click here.

    Can the Gallery Expand Mode function act in the exaxt same manner as a store and display descriptions?  I would like to upload a number of images from my catalog, and when the visitor clicks on the image I would like another screen to pop up with text descriptions and information, just like an item in a store page would do,  as well as a link to contact me for further info if interested.  Thank you

    Hi  whharchitect


    Please click on the Gallery > Change Style > Edit Style and then this windows opens: http://screencast.com/t/PXmmOmCqnay

    Here you can change font and color.

    How do I change the font and color of the font in the gallery image title and description?  What I am currently getting is black bold font that is not in keeping with the overall look of the site.

    Please refrain from posting the same question on multiple threads.

    This makes it hard for us to provide support.

    I am having a problem when I add text, it is cut off on the far left and on the bottom of letters with tails or curvise fonts. Is there a way to fix the margins somehow?
