Additional things to consider

Permission and Copyright law

Did you create these images? Are these images copyright protected? Do you have permission to use these images?

All web content must comply with the Seattle University Copyright Guidelines. Text, images and videos, and other media files, that do not meet these requirements must be deleted immediately.

In cases where copyrighted material is posted with the permission of the content owner, that permission must be attained in writing and be available for verification if needed.


You need to be sure your content is as accessible to all users as possible. 

If your image files are providing important content to your users, then you need to include a description of the image that will convey the meaning of the image to users who cannot see or see well and are using a screen reader to navigate your website. You should include any text that appears on the image in the description.

When you upload your images into the Media Library, the text you add in the "Description" field will be read to users by the screen reader. Make sure the description is short but conveys the meaning of the image.
