Journal (Old) Style with Caption & Comments next to each image
Ok, I think I exhausted my search, but I couldn't find an answer...

I'd like to make a gallery with the following traits:

1) Based on the "Journal (Old)" Style (I have accomplished this part)
2) Left-justified images (I have accomplished this part)
3) Caption to the Right of the Image
4) Comments to the Right of the Image, and Below the Caption

It's parts 3 & 4 where I'm drawing blanks. Any ideas if/how this is possible?

I'd like to do this for all "Journal (Old)" Styles, but I don't mind creating a new Theme (I think that would be my other option...)

Here's the url of the gallery I'm working on... It's unlisted, as I haven't published it for my client (yet):

Thanks in advance for the insight and assistance!

For #3 change this:

Code:
/* captions and photos left-justified in Journal (old) style */
#journal .journal_entry .photo {
    float: none;
    margin: 0;
}
So it is float: left; instead of float: none;


For the comments though I don't think that is possible.

Thank you for the reply, Eric!

I tried your revision to the code, but I think I'll just delete that whole bit, as the alternating placement of the images vs. left-justification of the images is a much lower priority (aesthetically and - more importantly - operationally) than is the ability to see Clients' & Viewers' Comments next to each image.

My goal is to make the gallery as user-friendly for my Clients as it is for me; to be able to see multiple images and their corresponding comments on one page, rather than having to flip through individual images to see their individual comments (even the option to view the comments via the Control Panel is inefficient and non-user-friendly, IMHO).
