Hi, I need some help with captioning images. I want to add a box under the image and caption it, but make sure the caption itself is proportionate with the image, and written under it. I have an example attached, I was hoping there was some kind of plugin that can add captions like these. The only problem I have with manually putting captions is that I want them to be proportionate to the image, so images big and small have a caption that fits perfectly, and matches with other images' captions. Thank you.

@DrDibly, that's pretty easy. I should be able to whip something up later today.

 

 

 

EDIT:

Try this plugin, and see if it's what you're looking for.

Base Size is calculated in relation the image height.

Thanks Toe_head2001,

 

This is nice and easy to use.

 

My suggestions for this effect:

- Option to use primary color for the text and secondary color for the caption background.

- Left, Center and Right justification

- Option to place the legend on the top or the sides.

- Font Type choice

@DrDibly, I'm sorry, plugins in paint.net can't change the image size (i.e. add more height to accommodate the caption).

 

@Eli, sure, all those are easy to do. I'll add them some time in the near future.

@DrDibly You may want to change the canvas size (Add more pixels at the bottom of the canvas) before running toe_head's Caption effect.
