Include Alt text in the CMS image field

We currently need to add an extra text field to manage Alt text in CMS, which is a bit silly, but mainly makes us reach the 30 fields limit too quickly.

    This is ridiculous, is there still no way to add alt text to single images in the CMS?

    It doesn't make any sense to have an image field that doesn't have an alt-text associated to it. The new Multi-Image field has alt-text baked in; let's do the same thing for regular image fields! No more using an additional set of fields just for the purpose of alt-text.

    Omigosh this is definitely needed! Accessibility fail.

    I'm continuing this discussion in 2019. Please add this feature. It's kind of silly that it doesn't exist yet.

    This seems so straight forward a need. Everyone wants basic SEO tools.

    YES. My SEMrush is yelling errors at me - all of my webflow sites have nearly 100 errors because image Alt tags are not specified, and cannot be specified in the CMS. I wasn't even aware of the extra text field work around but yes, that's pretty silly given the CMS field cap.
