Submission Requirements

Charts and Photos

Charts, photos, and other graphic images must be submitted with specific information. These requirements include—

  • "Alt" tags. The Federal Government requires that "alt" (alternative) tags accompany all graphic images on the Web. An "alt" tag is brief text that describes an image when the cursor rolls over it. See Accessibility and 508 Compliance for additional information.

  • Captions. Keep captions brief (approximately 20–25 words) and use keywords as appropriate.

  • Photo credit information. Include the name of the person who took the photo, who owns the photo, and when it was taken.

Submit tables and graphs in separate electronic files because they are often created in specialized software. Also provide printouts of each.
