A few notes: 
  • In the pop-up window, two fields are optional: Image Description and Image Title
    • Image Descriptions are used for accessibility purposes. Image descriptions provide textual information about an image, making it possible for individuals who use screen readers to understand the contents of the image.
    • Image Titles will be seen by users who download the image from your website (the image will be downloaded with the image title as the file name).
  • Do not delete them from the Site Builder image library unless you no longer need them. Otherwise, you will create broken links. 
  • Some departments use folders within the image library to organize images. If you open the library and can't see your images, check the left side of the window to see if folders are being used.
  • If you have a collection of images, consider creating a photo gallery using Flickr, or an Instagram feed within your page.
  • If you require specialized photography, you can complete the Request for Services form to enquire about hiring a photographer.
