    I don't think the description does anything so you can leave it blank.

    The "Title" is the text shown when someone hovers over the image, so it is good to put something there (especially to make the page friendly to screen readers for the visually impaired).

    Well, I've tried to post pictures and leave the description blank, but it comes up with a white box and an X in the top left corner of the box. Is that just my computer's firewall?

    portland, or
    i may be incorrect, but i do web development and i think the alt tag

    alt="this is my image"


    is what text readers will read when someone visually impaired looks at the page

    Quote:You are spot on. I thought the CMS we have was using the "title" as the alt tag.
