How does Alt Text Magic work?

Alt Text Magic uses cutting edge machine learning models to “read” your images and suggest descriptive text.

What if I reach my monthly limit?

Alt Text Magic will alert you when you reach your monthly limit. You can continue to upload images as usual; however, alt text will not be automatically generated.

What if I need more alt text generations?

Alt Text Magic provides two solutions: 1) You can upgrade your plan to increase your monthly limit or 2) You can buy alt text credits a la carte in increments of 50 (these credits never expire).

Can I change my subscription?

You can upgrade or downgrade your subscription at any time by logging in to your account at https://user.alttextmagic.com/. Your API key will automatically accommodate the change.

How do API keys work?

After selecting your Alt Text Magic subscription license, you will receive a unique API key tied to your account. To activate, you will need to copy and paste the API key onto the plugin page via your WordPress dashboard. You can upgrade or downgrade your license at any time on our account page. This API key can be shared across all of your sites.

I use Alt Text Magic on my e-commerce website. I’m uploading a mix of photos for product pages, blog posts, marketing content, etc. I appreciate that any image I upload is automatically given Alt text! Most of the time the generated text is pretty accurate, though I typically tweak it a little because I want to describe my products (framed artwork) in a specific way. Still, it’s much faster and easier to tweak existing content than it is to write the full description myself! I’ve upgraded to the professional plan at $5/mo so that when I have large batches of product photos to add I don’t run out of credits mid-stream, though there’s also a way to check your library and add alt text to any images that are missing it, as well as a log of recent alt text generated and which images it was added to. They’ve thought of everything! Leave no alt text blank!

I really enjoy the plugin. It worked just as advertised. I do wish there was more functionality to add an SEO keyword in or give it a length guideline. For example it might say “laptop with blue text stating ‘X'” but it doesn’t have any context to it if it was a decorative piece or any connection to the SEO keyword of the article. Overall, still impressed

The pricing model for this plugin is absurd. Perhaps makes sense for large agencies with money to burn but the credits for this simple task costs more than the credits for advanced cloud caching tools, image cdns, even many cloud based hosting companies. Perhaps worth it at bulk prices, but certainly not on the smaller end.

Works as advertised. This saves my agency a lot of time when uploading a lot of images.
