Hi there @saikatm,

Alt tags on images are designed to only show when the image cannot be loaded or for use by screen-readers etc. In the normal operation of a website being viewed, they would not show.

if you’re wanting to add captions to your images, I would suggest making the img part of a figure and then adding a figcaption to them. You can read more about figcaptions here:

Hope that helps!
