Just read the article on image SEO on the blog with interest.
When I add images to my blog I always fill in the description and alt text for the reasons that Leanne mentions in the article. And I always add descriptions ad extra tags on Flickr.
But I do wonder…
Don’t Folksy - like Etsy - rename the images in their storing process?
When I right-click an image and choose save as - the suggested name shows up as main.jpg or mini.jpg.
and if I do a ‘save image url’ it shows something like this:
The name I gave the image is nowhere to be seen.
Really don’t fancy renaming everything adding extra hard work for nothing.
Not to mention my photo archiving system would go out the window if I start naming my 5 shots of each item something completely different. I would need a folder for each item to keep the photos together and with at least 400 odd jewellery items what a nightmare that would be.
Please could someone on the Folksy team confirm that the images on Folksy somehow retain their original name even when I can’t see it?
