For main image : in media.phtml template file:

<span><?= $this->escapeHtml($this->getImageLabel()) ?></span>

also see https://github.com/OpenMage/magento-lts/blob/1.9.4.x/app/design/frontend/rwd/default/template/catalog/product/view/media.phtml


You can use this code-

<?php echo (Mage::app()->getLayout()->checkVersion('1.7.x.x') ? $this->htmlEscape : $this->escapeHtml).($_image->getImage()->getLabel()) ?>

This one getting image label and you can save that into any data attribute and show that title or text with jquery.

  • Why are you using checkVersion ?
