I need to add a caption for each image inserted in a page. And of course this caption must be i18n (translatable).

Does anybody here already had this problem? Is there any widget or code been already developped to solve this? If not, any pointer where to start to add such a field?

Another question: I'm wondering what exactly is the image "description" field for? Is it only a informationnal field for the webmaster?

Thanks for any information.

How can I get the content of the "description" field of the image and display it along the image. By default SS put the content of this field in the ALT and TITLE properties of the IMG tag. How can I access this field ?

How about:

<% control MyImage %><img src="$Link">$Title<% end_control %>

Thanks for the input. Yes it would do it. But my problem is different.

It is related to the images inserted via tinymce editor. I think I will need to edit tinymce behavior or try to convince my customer to write the image description differently.
