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

  1. Begin by launching into your intelligent editor from your account Home

  4. You will now see a small window open on your editor titled Alt Text. Within the text box enter the verbiage you would like about the image. You will want this to be a brief description of what you see in the image no more than 1-2 sentences.
  5. Once you’re happy with your description click Apply on the bottom right to save the text to the image.
