If you want a lot of flexibility in writing captions for your image, the "Identity Plate" feature on the Page pane in Print module offers far more options than "Photo Info."

Under "Photo Info" you can alter the font size, and that's just about it, and the caption appears in a fixed position at the bottom of the image.

If you use "Identity Plate," you can choose among many fonts, and alter both font size and color. Then, when the identity plate appears in the photo, you can rotate it, and drag it to any position in the margins: a custom caption, exactly where you want it.
