You can now add captions and alt text to images in your Substack posts.
Now do text wrapping. ;)
Glad for the addition. I was confused why this wasn't available from the get-go, as a web accessibility standards that's existed since the 1.0 days.
Can we add hyperlinks to the captions so we can properly source the photos?
Thank you for this and I can't wait to try it out tomorrow for my daily newsletter. This is the missing piece for me, and I'm so glad to have this functionality.
Great addition, but I noticed this afternoon it seems to be adding too much white space under the photo when you DON'T add a caption. At least in the drafting page.
💥 goes the 🧨.
I've been using captions a lot, and they look great on the website version, but in the emails they appear pretty far below the picture. A lot of white space in between - which is extra confusing if you then have another photo right after, you can't tell which photo the text is captioning. Possible to tweak?
One of the finest examples of better late than never! So glad to have this. Next, add keyboard shortcuts for Headings. :)
This is fantastic. We should all caption dog photos in our substacks
This is great for attribution and hopefully for SEO too.
Please, text wrapping! We have been waiting for years!!!
I can’t for the life of me figure out how to move images within a post. Can you help?
As of today (6/10/23) this feature appears to be broken, and furthermore I can no longer find a place on Substack's web site to submit a bug report. This morning I tried to submit a new article. The ellipsise that formerly appeared at the upper right of all images seems to be gone. I found a way to trick one image into adding text as a caption (which was to add the text the image and then backspace before the first character), but this worked only for the first image in the article. So now my article is stuck in "draft" until you fix this.
Can a widget be added so that subscribers can add images to their comments?
I can't CREATE captions. I'm deaf. I just need to know how to turn them on!
