For a long time, Image Alt tags were just those words that showed up when an image did not load on a page. With faster internet and better servers, why does that matter now?
Image Alt tags are used for more than just slow images – notably by search engines and screen-readers. Search engines use those tags to determine where your site shows up on their search results. Screen-readers, often used by people that are vision-impaired, use the Image Alt tag to describe what is happening in a picture.
If you don’t have your Image Alts filled in, you could be losing out on SEO.
Or even sued for not being ADA-compliant.
And, unless you’ve been writing perfectly descriptive Image Alt tags since the day you started your site, you probably have a few (or a few thousand) images that don’t have any Alt tag at all right now.

“When I realized how many of the older photos on my website did not have alt tags, I reached out to Kris immediately…
I knew that The Blog Fixer would be able to figure out a solution for the alt tag issues, and sure enough, his solution turned out better than I imagined it would.”
“We needed a tool to add alt text to all of our older images and wanted a solution where we wouldn’t have to update them post by post which would be very time consuming and costly. The Blog Fixer’s fix made it so easy. We now have alt text on all of our images and don’t have to worry. Thank you Blog Fixer for creating such an awesome tool!”
After purchase, there is a fix customization form to fill out that will determine which images are processed. Only images without an alt value, all images, only images containing a hashtag, etc. Only images actually used on a post will be searched and counted against your quota. Images in the media library but not used on the site will be skipped.
No! As with all of our fixes, the changes are permanent. You can uninstall our plugin after the Image Alt tags have been updated and your changes will remain.
Your purchase covers up to 1000 images. After that, just $10 more for every additional 1000 images (we see you, drool-worthy food bloggers with 27 pics per post!).
Yes, the Image Alt value will be updated in both places.
Yes, if you’d like to revisit existing alt values as well as fill in missing ones, let us know if the fix customization form you’re sent after purchase. We can use a variety of criteria to find old alts you’d like to fix. Do keep in mind that any image processed by the tool counts toward the image quota ($10 / 1000 images after the first 1000)
You will find their accuracy to be hit and miss, which is why we still require a person to go through the results before they are applied. A human is still able to write the “best” descriptions in most cases, but the AI generated values give you the option of quickly adding valid alt tags to the images they understand correctly. In general, the simpler the picture, the more likely the AI description will be accurate.
Pictures of food are tricky! Just like a person not familiar with certain dishes may struggle to identify them based just on their appearance, the artificial intelligence will as well. It will do its best to use context clues around the images to help, but you should expect to need to rewrite a better alt on many recipe images.
Image search is performed against posts, pages, and most options and widgets. Images displayed as part of your theme and by some plugins will not be searched nor present in the results.
Let us know after purchasing if there are other images (for example, all uploaded before a certain date) that you would like included, and we can give you a quote.
