How to add alt tag to banner or background image

Hi all,

I’m using Foundry for a new site…and am struggling on how to add an alt tag to a background or banner image. The stack in question is Motion in the Foundry pack.

I know in the various image stacks most have an option to add an alt tag but if I have a banner or background image and the stack doesn’t have an option to add an alt tag how do I go about it please.

As always, advise and thoughts more than welcome.

Cheers Scott

Hey there @scottf – Images that are placed in the background of an HTML element do not get alt tags. This isn’t just standard practice, but instead there is literally not a way to do this. I assume you’re wanting to add alt tags to the background image for SEO purposes, but that is not necessary. Search engines are not looking for alt tags on these background images.
