    Hello Jeff,

    You can create custom fields for the images module and then edit the widget template for the image gallery control to show the contents of your new custom field. If you check the attached screenshot you can verify the outlined procedure. For the purpose of my tests I have used the already created description field and edited one of the widget views to add my description field. The process is basically the same for any other text field you will add.

    Kind regards,
