Summary of this Tutorial:

Adding a image alt text will show when the image can’t be displayed or to help search engines decide what the image is.

An image title will show when a user mouses over a image.

These attributes are used to help with accessibility on your site for those with poor vision or screen readers.

To add the alt and image title start by uploading a image.

You will see the ability to add the alt title.

Once the image is in your post you can edit the image and there you will find the image title to set.

    #Wordpress  is a step up from #blogger  in a lot of difference ways. The more in depth take on posting an image is a great added bonus.

    Thanks for adding captions for the Deaf.
    Another use that should be mentioned. ALT tags should describe what’s on it. Screen readers for the blind and visually impaired will read out this text and therefore make your image accessible. Title will show when you hover over image.

    A million WordPress tutorials and none of them look like the new interface.

    my theme doesn't work like that for my logo

  • Samantha Evans on September 16, 2019

    what if I already had uploaded images in our wordpress site and I want to rename the image. The best way is to delete the image and reupload it with the new file name together with the image tag and title tag?

    So the title in the attachment details page has no SEO advantage? You said it is just for WP.

  • Kavoos on June 8, 2020

  • Elsa Pakopoulou on August 3, 2020
