Automatically Add Description, Caption And Alt Text From Image Title

Do you want to add automatically image Description, Caption, Alt text and image title for your uploaded image details in your WordPress post? Because this is best for Search Engine Optimization (SEO), When you upload a new media file to WordPress it creates a new Attachment. An Attachment is in effect a type of post, and as such an Attachment has a Title, an Excerpt and Content just like regular posts do.

In the case of an Attachment, the Excerpt is used to store the image Caption, and the Content is used to store the image Description. For more example see the below image figure.
