How are captions created/styled? Like in the image attached, the caption is covered in a bold background and the way it is aligned is spectacular. Please help.

Hello Ndugs,

Once you have set your caption in a text block, drag out some guides for alignment and then shorten the text frame down to just the top line. Click on the red overset symbol and drag out the remaining text lines in their own frames. Then make the background on each frame paper or any other color.

Once you have one caption done, you can copy and paste it over other images and replace the text and just lengthen or shorten the frames to get you lines to fit.

Hope this helps,

Adobe InDesign
