images and text living together

I have a question about having images and text together. The idea is to have a picture and along side it have text explain something about it. For example: have a picture of a dancer and then I want text that says, " come see the show at 8:00pm" Which in itself is easy but I need it to transition to another slide/text item and picture describing another show we have going on. Now I have been able to do it OK as one placeholder in HTML with a table. Problem is I would then have to scale the picture, since I'm using a text item embedded into the table to do it. I really just want to be able to use a picture placeholder, then a text place holder together and be able to transition both at the same time. Is that possible to do?

Thanks

Placeholders are separate entities.  They do share the same clock, so if items in separate Placeholders have the same Duration, they'll switch at the same time.

As an alternative to the Text Item, have you tried the Bulletin Widget?  You can combine images in text there, and be able to specify the size the to be inserted into the Bulletin.

Thanks.
