Title overlay on masonry portfolio

I was wondering if it was possible to have the title shown as an overlay on the portfolio images. I would like the title to appear all the time, not just in the mouse over state. I have checked out this thread Mouseover Titles on Project Images but the code doesn’t quite work as I was hoping.

Also, is it possible to unalphabetize the filter labels? I would like them to list in a specific order.

Thank you for your help!

Never mind. I found a plug-in to replace the Sydney Portfolio plugin that does everything I wanted and more.
