How can we make Ghost better?

Image captions

Hi,

It'd be awesome to have the possibility to add image captions whenever needed. If I'm not mistaken, it shouldn't be too hard to implement this feature either.

I've seen someone has come up with this solution:

Cheers!

        Any update on the status of this? Also, it is imperative to be able to add image credit to the standard post image on the site for copyright reasons.

        @Jon I'm with you on the attribution, I have the exact same challenge as I'm using Creative Commons photos in my blog cover.

        It would be good to enable links in the caption as they are usually used as part of the attribution (link to owner and/or license)

        Here's another workaround solution:

        <figure>
        <img src="/content/images/2015/07/IMG_0182-1.JPG" alt="a selfie of taking a selfie">
        <figcaption>Look at me, look at me</figcaption>
        </figure>

        This needs to be implemented natively.

        @allessandro, using JQuery for this purpose is a hacky workaround, not a solution. That said, I'll be using such techniques in a custom template.

        And the caption itself can be pulled from EXIF or IPTC tags.

        This would also make it easier to attribute images and photos. I take a lot of images from flickr that are licensed under Creative Commons. It's especially hard to attribute the post logo.
