    Yes, it is really important that people write descriptions so that the alt tag can be thoughtfully populated. Think about what content you'd want in place of the image if you couldn't see it; I often duplicate the location data, for example, if that's important to the image.

    So, instead of putting my description as "Sheep" maybe I'll make it "Sheep cavorting in a dry field."

    Instead of "TS Golden Bear" or "ship" I wrote "Training Ship Golden Bear, part of the CSU Maritime campus in Vallejo, CA."

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
