ALT or TITLE attributes for images — when to use what

The ques­tion about when to use the ALT or the TITLE attribute is as old as the markup itself. And still, 13 years since my HTML debut I, myself strug­gle to get it right. So for me and for every­one else who find it embassis­ing to not be 100% sure about the attrib­utes, I’ve made this quick list. 

When to use the ALT attribute

When to use the TITLE attribute


  1. What I always wanted!

  3. Thanks!

  4. Wow! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely dif­fer­ent topic but it has pretty much the same lay­out and design. Won­der­ful choice of colors!

  5. In the great pat­tern of things you secure a B+ with regard to effort. Exactly where you actu­ally con­fused every­body ended up being in all the details. You know, as the maxim goes, details make or break the argu­ment.. And that couldn’t be much more accu­rate here. Hav­ing said that, let me reveal to you exactly what did give good results. Your text is cer­tainly quite per­sua­sive and that is prob­a­bly why I am mak­ing the effort in order to com­ment. I do not really make it a reg­u­lar habit of doing that. 2nd, while I can cer­tainly notice a jumps in rea­son­ing you make, I am def­i­nitely not cer­tain of just how you appear to unite your points which in turn pro­duce the actual con­clu­sion. For the moment I will yield to your posi­tion but trust in the near future you con­nect the facts much better.

  6. Do you mind if I quote a few of your arti­cles as long as I pro­vide credit and sources back to your weblog? My blog site is in the very same niche as yours and my users would cer­tainly ben­e­fit from a lot of the infor­ma­tion you present here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Thanks!

  7. hey there and thank you for your info – I’ve def­i­nitely picked up some­thing new from right here. I did how­ever exper­tise sev­eral tech­ni­cal points using this site, since I expe­ri­enced to reload the site a lot of times pre­vi­ous to I could get it to load prop­erly. I had been won­der­ing if your host­ing is OK? Not that I’m com­plain­ing, but slug­gish load­ing instances times will some­times affect your place­ment in google and could dam­age your high-quality score if ads and mar­ket­ing with Adwords. Any­way I’m adding this RSS to my e-mail and could look out for a lot more of your respec­tive fas­ci­nat­ing con­tent. Ensure that you update this again very soon..

  8. Thanks for the sug­ges­tions you have dis­cussed here. Yet another thing I would like to state is that per­sonal com­puter mem­ory require­ments gen­er­ally rise along with other devel­op­ments in the know-how. For instance, when new gen­er­a­tions of proces­sor chips are brought to the mar­ket, there is usu­ally a cor­re­spond­ing increase in the shape demands of both the lap­top or com­puter mem­ory as well as hard drive space. This is because the pro­gram oper­ated by means of these cpus will inevitably boost in power to take advan­tage of the new know-how.

  11. Hey! This post could not be writ­ten any bet­ter! Read­ing this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept chat­ting about this. I will for­ward this arti­cle to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

    Comment by etoro review on May 20th, 12 at 7:18 pm

  12. I mas­tered more inter­est­ing things on this fat reduc­tion issue. A sin­gle issue is that good nutri­tion is espe­cially vital if diet­ing. A tremen­dous reduc­tion in junk food, sug­ary food items, fried foods, sug­ary foods, pork, and white col­ored flour prod­ucts might be nec­es­sary. Hold­ing wastes unwanted organ­isms, and harm­ful tox­ins may pre­vent tar­gets for fat-loss. While spe­cific drugs momen­tar­ily solve the con­di­tion, the unpleas­ant side effects will not be worth it, and they also never present more than a tem­po­rary solu­tion. It’s a known indis­putable fact that 95% of dietary fads fail. Many thanks shar­ing your ideas on this blog site.

  13. Fan­tas­tic blog you have here but I was curi­ous about if you knew of any dis­cus­sion boards that cover the same top­ics dis­cussed in this arti­cle? I’d really like to be a part of online com­mu­nity where I can get opin­ions from other expe­ri­enced indi­vid­u­als that share the same inter­est. If you have any rec­om­men­da­tions, please let me know. Thank you!

  15. Please let me know if you’re look­ing for a arti­cle author for your site. You have some really good posts and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some mate­r­ial for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if inter­ested. Regards!

  18. With havin so much con­tent and arti­cles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copy­right vio­la­tion? My web­site has a lot of com­pletely unique con­tent I’ve either writ­ten myself or out­sourced but it seems a lot of it is pop­ping it up all over the inter­net with­out my autho­riza­tion. Do you know any meth­ods to help pre­vent con­tent from being ripped off? I’d really appre­ci­ate it.

    Comment by disposable punch bowl on Aug 6th, 12 at 9:14 pm

  19. Appre­ci­at­ing the com­mit­ment you put into your site and detailed infor­ma­tion you present. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed mate­r­ial. Won­der­ful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  20. I was won­der­ing if you ever thought of chang­ing the lay­out of your blog? Its very well writ­ten; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a lit­tle more in the way of con­tent so peo­ple could con­nect with it bet­ter. Youve got an awful lot of text for only hav­ing one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Comment by evolution robotics mint automatic hard floor cleaner 4200 review on Aug 15th, 12 at 6:38 am

  21. Hav­ing unique con­tent is impor­tant to the suc­cess of your blog and if you plan on mak­ing money from a blog you need good solid unique con­tent that is edu­ca­tional. You don’t ever start mak­ing money from blog­ging until you have return vis­i­tors com­ing to your blog, and once you have this then you can start try­ing to mon­e­tize the traf­fic. In the first few months though you will make hardly any­thing and you need to strictly focus on build­ing nat­ural strong back­links and unique edu­ca­tional content.

  22. I sim­ply want to men­tion I am new­bie to blogs and truly liked your web page. Prob­a­bly I’m plan­ning to book­mark your blog post . You really have fan­tas­tic well writ­ten arti­cles. Thanks a lot for reveal­ing your web-site.

  39. Las fotos del francés Eugèné Atget se sitúan a medio camino entre el doc­u­mento social y la fotografía artís­tica, ya que su exce­lente com­posi­ción y expre­sión de la visión per­sonal van más allá del mero tes­ti­mo­nio.

  40. Las fotografías estere­oscópi­cas con soporte de vidrio fueron un gran acierto para la evolu­ción de la estere­o­scopía y fueron muy usadas a finales del XIX y prin­ci­p­ios del XX. 1 Monas­te­rio no sólo escribe el «Epíl­ogo sobre la estere­o­scopía » en el que hay infor­ma­ción inex­acta, sino que además lo hace como un breve repaso por la his­to­ria de la fotografía de man­era ais­lada, sin generar un vín­culo con la biografía de Tamayo.
