I just started to use Windows Live Writer and love the interface especially with the drag and drop pictures. However I cannot seem to be able to add captions below the images... How do I do this? Is there a plugin for that or am I just missing the procedure?

There seem to be two methods for doing this.

  1. You can use the watermark text option in the advanced area of the image insert option.

2 you can download the Polaroid Picture Plugin and use the space it creates below the picture to create the caption.

These two methods are written up here in more detail:

  1. You can set the image in a table 2 rows tall and 1 column wide and place the caption below the image and hide the borders of the table by setting them to zero.
