Large parts of the Fediverse won't boost (share) your image posts without alt text included. Right now this is a manual process: schedule in Mixpost, and then when the post goes live, edit and redraft with alt text. This really cuts down on the convenience of Mixpost for this channel specifically, and I'd imagine any ActivityPub network in the future.

Just wanted to put a suggestion in, if this is possible to add. Thanks so much, love the app so far.

@Dima-Botezatu tested this and indeed some alt images are important.

Also linkedin warned me in a post with image that they have automatically added a image description. We may not always want that to happend.

Good to know about LinkedIn, thanks for sharing. But yes, alt-text is very important for accessibility. For the moment, I'm unable to use Mixpost with regularity because alt-text is missing. Though, of course, I understand @Dima-Botezatu is the sole developer. Hoping time can be found at some point for this feature.

Thanks @Sascha-Foerster - I didn't see this was already requested. And you make an excellent point about adding focal points to imagery. That is something that is also very important that I didn't remember to include.

Combining our two requests, that puts Mastodon alt-text (and general image editing improvements) in the top ten feature requests, I believe @Dima-Botezatu

Thanks everyone!

This feature would be great, what would be next level would be the ability to use genAI (an llm) to auto annotate images for different platforms.
