WHAT IS CAPTION?
A caption, also known as a cutline, is text
that appears below an image. Most captions
draw attention to something in the image that is
not obvious, such as its relevance to the text.
Captions can consist of a few words of
description, or several sentences. Along with
the title, the lead, and section headings,
captions are the most commonly read words in
an article, so they should be succinct and
informative.
Caption also include a short title or
heading of an article in a magazine or
newspaper. Words shown on a cinema or
television screen to establish the scene of a
story are also called captions.
There are several criteria for a good
caption. A good captions clearly identifies
the subject of the picture without detailing
the obvious. It is succinct, establishes the
pictures relevance to the article, provides
context for the picture, and draws the
reader into the article.
