How to place text over different images with different positions?

Problem :

I know how to place text over 1 image by giving the image position:relative; and the text position:absolute; and then position the text where I want. My problem is that I have a list of images on which I want to place a text. The solution I mentioned doesn't work, because when I try to position the text, all of them will have the same position and I see only one text. I'm sure you understand what I mean. Is there a solution for this only by using CSS?

edit: I should mention that this is a vertical list and all the images have the same left. edit 2: They the text and the image are already in a container!


Solution :

You should nest your image and Text in a container(a div). You then position the text in the div and the image in the div. This should solve your problem.

here is my working example:

.image_container{ position: relative; }

.image_container img{
   position: relative;
   width: 200px;
   height: 100px;
   z-index: 1;

   top: 70px;
   left: 35px;
   color: white;
   z-index: 2;
