How to vertically center caption over a Gallery image for SS 7.1?



Just getting into SquareSpace and I already have a question!

When captions are turned on in the Gallery block for 7.1, they appear below their corresponding images. Is there a way to have the caption appear over the image itself? My CSS is SUPER rusty, but I've included a sketch showing what I'm trying to do. Thanks in advance! 🙏

I think I figured it out. Again, super rusty w/ CSS, but here's what I did. Hope this helps!

/* Make sure to target your gallery. Each gallery has its own unique collection ID, which can be found via View Source. */


  .gallery-grid-item {
      position: relative;
      display: inline-block;

  .gallery-caption-wrapper {
    display: table;
    height: 100%;

  /* Caption Container */
  figcaption.gallery-caption { 
    padding: 0;  
    position: absolute;
    z-index: 999;
    margin: 0 auto;
    left: 0;
    right: 0;
    top: 0%;
    width: 100%; 
    height: 100%;

  .gallery-caption-content {
    display: table-cell;
    vertical-align: middle;
