I am not a coder! (disclaimer!)
I am a physical therapist :)
I have figured out thru the tutorial how to load my pics on the slider, yay!
Now how to do I get word label/category names to be up there with the pics just like in his demo version?

thank you

I think you need to edit your pictures in Photoshop or some other photo-editing software to add the labels that you want on your images before you load your pics to the slider.

thanks for the idea. I don't have a photo editing software tho. Isn't there a place in the theme where I can add the text so it overlays my sliding photos? Anyone?

Appreciate the help

The text has to be in photos.

They are correct you have to put the text in manually in a photo editing software. really its not that hard. There are a few freeware photo editing software programs that you can get if you do not want to buy one. I use Coreldraw as it is rather inexpensive.

You cannot do it in wordpress, but you can use this site: http://www.pixlr.com to edit or add the text at the side of the photos. It is free. :)
