Adding Alt Text to images on your website is a great way to make it accessible to all visitors and boost your ranking on Google. All photos added from our free photo library will automatically have alt text added. Still, we provide you the freedom to add and edit alt text on all images selected or manually uploaded. 

  1. Begin by launching your intelligent editor from your Account Home. Click on the Edit Site button.
