Images uploaded to WordPress include the file’s meta data and text fields for making the image more useful and accessible.

Key areas of attachment details

  1. Information, meta data, on upload details, name, type, size, and dimensions.
  2. Fillable fields for alternative text, title, caption, and description.
  3. URL for linking to the image.

Other considerations

Attachment and image details allow you to better manage your website’s media. Information on file size can tell you whether the file is optimized for the web, less than 250kb. The most important field to fill out, in the fillable fields, is alternative text. Alternative text provides those using assistive technology with a short description of the image and the context it provides to the page. If the image is purely decorative then do not add alternative text. Title, caption, and description are also useful. Captions can provide users with information about the image and why it is important.
