Presentation with Images and Captions
Add a functionality to the Photo Album feature that automatically creates captions for each Slide.
Look at the attached presentation how they should look like (this has beek approved by the Design team).
You need to add a checkbox to the Dialog saying "Add Caption to each Slide": http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sd/uiconfig/simpress/ui/photoalbum.ui
Then implement it here: http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sd/source/ui/dlg/PhotoAlbumDialog.cxx
adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.

Removing comma from whiteboard (please use a space to delimit values in this field)
Hey, i am new here, i want to work on this enhancement. Can anyone guide me in the right direction.
Hi Kunai, general code pointers are in Comment 0, please be specific where you need help.
i did make the checkbox in photoalbum.ui but i am not sure how to implement the caption feature , it would be really helpful if you could provide me some pointers on how to implemnt the same.
Maybe someone else from the developers can help out? (Dev List is in CC)
I hope the captions are to be added by creating a text box of black color right. If so, How is the size of text box determined? Is it adjusted according to the size of the text or it spans across the entire slide (slide 1 and slide 2)?
Can someone please tell me how to add a text object in a slide?
Any suggestions on what the default caption will be? (ex:click to add text/ caption or an empty field)
I have almost completed the patch and before I submit it for review , any suggestions if I am missing on any requirement. The patch creates a rectangular box with attributes-
Transparency: Solid 20%
Any clarification, if it needs to have any default text (Click to insert Title/Caption) and size of the rectangular box(standard or anything else)?
The attached example presentation on the last slide has "Click to add Title" so I'd use that. For size I'd use the width of the image/slide and height as in the example, which looks like ~3 text lines.
