  5. On the right hand side, under “Attachment Details” are options for your image.
    • Add a new Title, Caption, Alt Text, and Descprition.  We recommend adding Alt Text at the very least.  Alt Text is short for alternative text for your image.
    • Select the preferred image alignment, Link To and Size for your post or page.  We recommend changing the Link To, to “None” if your image will not be linked to anything.
    • Click the blue, “Insert into Post” when finished.

Always make sure to Preview your post or page before publishing.
