Adding alt, title attribute and caption for photos uploaded to Blogger

I already have a post on uploading pictures in the HTML mode and adding alt attribute to the picure, so to make it complete, let's make a post to explain to show step by step how you can add alt and title attributes as well as caption in the COMPOSE mode.

(alt attribute of the form alt="some text" will cause the "some text" to display when if for any reasons the picture cannot be displayed. It will also cause the text to be audible when a vision impaired visitor using screen reading software visit a webpage with pictures.)

Let's upload a picture here while in the COMPOSE mode of the post editor. Below will be what you will see in the post editor:

When you hover your mouse over the picture, the mouse cursor will change to a cross

Click on it and the picture become highlighted and a row with options appear below the picture

Click on PROPERTIES and a popup appears:
Then just type in whatever title text and alt text you find suitable and click OK and it is done.

Try hovering your mouse cursor on the picture above and note what you can see. Note that there is also a caption.
