Step 1: Prepare HTML

Create HTML code for the overlay caption.
Note: Place an image named 1.jpg in /images folder.

<div class="box">
	<div class="caption">
		<h3>This is Image One</h3>
		<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nulla commodo dolor in dui lacinia gravida.</p>
	<img src="images/1.jpg" />

Step 2: Add CSS

Add CSS properties for box and caption.

.box {
	position: relative;
	float: left;
	width: 300px;
	height: 300px;

.caption {
	display: none;
	position: absolute;
	background: #000;
	opacity: 0.7;
	top: 0;
	left: 0;
	width: 90%;
	height: 90%;
	padding: 5%;
	color: #fff;

Step 3: Call jQuery Library

Call jQuery library in your webpage. I am using Google CDN hosted jQuery library.
You can use alternative method to include jQuery library.

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

Step 4: Add jQuery code

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
