Re: Alt Text For Collages


From: Ryan E. Benson

My first question would be how is the collages being made? If it is
individual images being arranged a certain way using css or Javascript, I'd
recommend pulling them out and making a single image in photoshop or your
preferred tool.

After that I would just give it an alt like mentioned in the other replies.
You wouldn't need to set things as Artifacts, which is for PDFs.
