Gallery Widget: text on image hover



New Member
Hi dear community,

this my first gig in this community - I am glad to be here!:)

I hope you can help me out with a problem I could not solve myself. I use the Elementor Pro Version.
I know there are tons of videos online showing how to make different image hover effects (text).

For my website I use the gallery widget, so it is much more convenient for me to upload new photos and add them to the gallery.
I couldn't find any option to put text as an image hover effect.
What I basically want to do is, that I will upload different kind of photos of customers. Once hovering over the photo (as part of the gallery) I want their name to pop up.

Can someone help me out how to do this or tell me what to code?

I'd appreciate any kind of help!
Thanks a lot in advance.
Best Regards,

Hi Ben,

You can use the "Overlay"
When you hover an image it will be visible. In the overlay you can use, title, description etc. to display int he overlay. You must add a title or description in each image.
Via Style you can style the overlay.

See my short video.... grrr but i cannot post a link on this forum yet.
it's on flickr/photos/[email protected]/shares/8SPm9S
