Running version 1.5.2 and using the ![](http://www.example.com/image.jpg) markdown for images but everything I try to use for adding alt tags isn't working. Yet when I look at page source the empty alt tag is there. So how do I add an alt tag to an image in my posts.

Awesome thanks Diego. Is it possible to add an alt tag to the profile image also? I see no where to do this in admin.

Is not possible from the admin panel, but you can do it in the theme.
This is a feature necessary ? or the alt could be the username or nickname ?

Hi Diego, thanks again. To answer your question about the alt tag and if it is necessary, based on everything I've learned about seo it is necessary to have an alt tag for every image on the page to avoid penalties from google when trying to rank organically.
