Skin Lucid, change the size and color title

Hello,
I use the Skin Lucid, which I find very appealing. I have a problem.
I am unable to change the size and color of the title under the large view of the individual images. I have set the bottom middle position under Lightbox Caption, Title under Preset, and Name and Title in Edit mode. The writing is always tiny and white. How can this be changed?
Thanks
JeffTucker

Well, you're doing better than I am. I can't get Lucid to show a caption on the lightbox images

(demo album removed)

Settings in screenshot. Laza?

Oops the image caption has left hardwired from the development phase, and always showed the fileTitle / comment combo.

Pending a bug fix, back to the original question:

Go to Lucid > Advanced > Custom code > CSS and enter:
#lightbox .cards .card .caption > * {font-size: 1.5em;}
The default value is 0.875em, so play with the size until you get what you want. You can change the color, but I think you'll find that anything other than light gray (the default is #dddddd) is going to be hard to read on that background:
#lightbox .cards .card .caption.dark * {color: #ff0000;}
And don't ask me why the CSS class isn't just something like .slideCaption. I have no idea. ;)

With your tip, I have achieved a suitable size for the title.
The color couldn't be changed. It stays white.
I used the color of my other texts:
#lightbox .cards .card .caption.dark * {color: # 20e2cb;}
It stays white.

Two other things are unsightly.
The title appears at the bottom of the photo and is often illegible. A position below the photo would be nice.
As soon as the slide show starts, the title disappears.
I haven't found a way to change this.

The color change works for me. I tested it (I always do, before I post a "solution"). Refresh your browser cache:

(demo album removed)

But I think the problem is that you've specified the color incorrectly:
Right:
 
color: #20e2cb;
 
Wrong:
 
color: # 20e2cb;
Can't help you with the layout issues - those are deeply embedded in the design of the skin. But if the titles are sometimes illegible, it may be because of the color you've chosen for them.

When do you expect to fix this bug? Seems like a serious one, to me.
