Thread for newcomers: Image descriptions Show more
Image descriptions are exactly what their name say. Their main purpose is to describe the contents of an image for people who can't view images in their browsers, or are visually impaired or blind and use a screen narrator.
You can add them to every image you post by hovering over it and clicking on the typing field.
It takes some time do to that everytime you upload an image, but it really helps people who can't see images otherwise.
If the image is too complex, focus on describing the main focal point or what you want to show, if either these options are applicable.
If you can't for any reason add a description to an image you upload, don't beat yourself up about it. But try to pick up the habit!

It's not always an obvious cut of what should be under a warning or not. If you have a doubt, don't hesitate to ask, and be receptive to people advising you to put a CW on certain subjects!
