How to add captions to images?

Coming from other platforms, I use image captions displayed under the image (generally centered, smaller font size and weight) but I can’t find a good way of replicating that here.

Is this something natively supported or will I need to add custom CSS and/or JS to support it?

Thanks

Hi there!

There are a couple ways to go about creating image captions. One way is to use the <small> html element inside a post. Just type out something under your image like this:

<small>This is a caption</small>

Here is an example of it in a Write.as post from @scott :

Another way is to simply use italics under an image. Here’s an example from @Melyanna :

If you want to make the caption centered and smaller, you can add the following HTML to your post under the image:

<div style="text-align:center;"><small>This is a caption</small></div>

Hope that helps & let me know if you need anything else.
