L shape image with caption?

Is there any way to have an L shaped image (it's actually two images that I've combined in photoshop) with a caption in the open space?

I've tried using the non-rectangular image code as provided in the stickied thread, but no matter which one I try, I can't get them to work properly. I'm usually pretty good at figuring things out through instructions, but I just <b>can't</b> get this.

I absolutely appreciate any help, and have attached an example of the image I'm working with.

I foresee odd things happening when someone resizes the font and your caption no longer fits in your little rectangle... But of course I haven't tried it

Perhaps - just a thought - it might be better to Photoshop your caption into the space and make it one simple rectangle. Certainly easier

Why don't split the two images and then combine them both and the caption in a <div> with "page-break-inside: avoid"?

Here you go

Here's something you can try, the size of both the caption and the picture will change with font-size, so it'll stay in place.

PNG with transparency
negative margin on the caption

Obviously you'll have to play around with the numbers and test on a device to make sure you get a set that work for your particular text + picture.
