Image Gallery Web Part - Title

Steel Contributor

Hi all,


Using the Image Gallery webpart, the title of the picture doesn't display in the thumbnail? I have to click on the image to get the title and caption?


Is there anyway to display the title on the thumbnail so people know what the image is without having to click on it first?

Hi @David Gorman

See article here

See step 6 for Add Text Over Image. Tested it this morning in a site and the text shows over the image.

Let me know how you get on? Hope that answers your question!

Hi @Christopher Hoard thanks for taking the time to look at this.

This works fine for the Image web part. However the Image *Gallery* web part needs to the user to click in to get the title. Seems an odd design choice.

Got it - edit the web part and change the layout to Carousel - this seems to do it. Although it doesn't seem to do it for the Brick and Grid layouts without - as you say - clicking into the image.

So yes, odd design choice. Could possibly raise a uservoice here in order to add the display of the title on the image for the brick and grid layouts

Hope that has helped!

Best, Chris
I have the same issue here (4 years later) and still the image names will not show up when using Image Gallery Web Part in grid mode. I'm wondering if there's other ideas on how to accomplish this without having to install a third-party app? Is there a code snippet somewhere I could apply (somehow)? I agree this is a design issue for sure, I'm surprised this thread started in 2019 and 4 years later I'm having the same problem.
