    You may style the caption via CSS, https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14233341/how-can-i-rotate-an-ht...

    Global caption root element has selector .rsGCaption.

    Thank you Dmitry!
    I did it this way by trial and error, guess it works:
    .rsDefault .rsGCaption {
    position: absolute;
    transform: rotate(90deg);
    transform-origin: left top 0;
    float: left;
    top: 5px;
    left: 25px;
    text-align: left;
    background: rgb(0, 0, 0);
            background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.75);
    color: #999;
    padding: 2px 8px;
    width: auto;
    font-size: 12px;
    border-radius: 2px;
