Add Image Descriptions

Here are two scripts for adding descriptions over or below images in a Keynote presentation.

Add Descriptions Under Images

This script positions image descriptions below the source image frame. If an image has no description, no text container is added. There are two options for controlling the process:

  • You can choose to process all images on all slides, or just the images on the current slide.
  • slide-choice-dialog
  • The font size for the descriptions can be a fixed size or be adjusted based upon the ratio of text length and image width.
  • text-size-query-dialog

Short descriptions:


Long descriptions:


Set the value for the default font family and size properties to suite your requirements.

Overlay Image Descriptions

Rather than place the image description below the source image, the following script overlays the description over the bottom of the source image.
