How to assign ALT Tag for image

I am adding images on cms from system and trying to give alt tag for image could you please assist me to achieve this.

You can use the description for that. Remember that at this point you aren’t dealing with an img tag, but with an image item in the cms. If you use this on a template you can put the description in the alt attribute of the img tag.

Thanks for quick response Jasper.

Actually in future i’m going to use that image on many places using templates but i want to avoid giving description each time so trying to give a ALT tag for original image which i can use wherever required.

Right, so use the description for the alt tag. If you need another field for that you will have to extend the image type. Off the top of my head I don’t think you can do that via essentials. I wouldn’t do this unless there was a really good reason. Another option would be to put images as a resource in a document.
