(Alt Text) for images on EPiServer



I am using CMS 7.5, and all I have for an image is the following:




Image Description

I cannot find (Alt. text) field for images, can you advise which field of the mentioned ones I can use for (Alt. text), and give me an example for alternative text for an image?

Hi Sherif Fadl.

Episerver relies on Content Types to accomodate assets, incl. images. You need to extend the Content Type of yours with a field to hold the alt text data value.

You can see an example here:

If you're unsure about where your Content Type for your image media is located within your solution, then try and do a search for MediaDescriptor - please look for one with the ExtensionString set to image extensions (like .jpg).
