AI Alt Text Suggestions

From there, a new window will open allowing you to enter in your own alt text, or use the AI suggestions.
AI suggestions are automatically generated using artificial intelligence to analyze the content of your image and provide a description, to save you time! The suggestions will generate two suggestions at a time to choose from, with the option to re-generate suggestions.
To add in one of the suggested descriptions, click on the select button in the caption box to add it in!
If you'd like to generate a set of new descriptions, select the re-generate button indicated by the circular arrow.
You can also tweak an AI generated suggestion by adding it to your caption, and adding in any edits you'd like!
