Hello all,
as , , and#NanoWrimo draw nearer, a reminder (and a request to make my life easier):

Please, PLEASE put in image descriptions.

In the web interface, when you have inserted an image (this part varies, check your instance or ask your instance admin)

SOMETIMES:
if you mouse over it, there is a field that says "describe for the visually impaired"
SOMETIMES
you click the "edit" button.

In TUSKY, it's the A✔️ in the bottom right of the image thumbnail.

(This makes my life easier because I am trying VERY HARD to only boost images that have image descriptions)

BONUS TO IMAGE DESCRIPTIONS:

The text limit there is entirely separate from the toot's character descriptions.

FINAL NOTE on image descriptions:

If you cannot figure out your instance or ap's image description method (I'm not sure if Subway Tooter has one, for instance), a note at the end of your toot is also fine.

Attached image is a generated cartoon bird at a typewriter.

@aldersprig subway hides the place to set a description in the thumbnail icons - if you tap one it'll show a prompt
