Put text on top of image in Gallery Stack

Recommended Posts


I'm currently working on a gallery stack for a website (https://www.juliamacchi.com/proyectos-a/project-two-llrgk-ppmcw). I want to achieve the same style as this gallery ( https://www.juliamacchi.com/proyectos-a). Specifically, I want the title and description to appear on top of each image within the gallery stack. I'd like the text to be aligned at the bottom left of each image and to have a dark overlay on the image to ensure readability.

I've attempted to modify the gallery stack using custom CSS, but I haven't been successful in achieving the desired outcome.

Could someone please assist me with this?

Thank you!

    width: 100%;

.newVideoWrapper .meta .meta-inside {

    padding-left: 10px;
    padding-bottom: 20px;
