Hello,

 

I am working on a project where there are lots of images. Some of them have captions saved in the image itself so its easy for me to use live captions. For some images I have to type captions manually.

Now the requirement is that I want to align the captions to the bottom of the image. I made an object style for it but it does not seems to be working. Currently I am doing it manually. Images are of different sizes.

 

Can any one suggest the flow which I should follow. I have attached a screenshot.

 

Thank you.

Hi

I followed the step provided in the URL. It helped me a lot but there is one issue.

I want the caption inside the image aligned with bottom of the image as shown in the sample I have attached. 

I tried giving a negative offset at caption setup in InDesign but then again another problem is that I do not know whether my caption will fit in one line of multiple line. Can anything be done for that ??

 

Thanks
