This guide will walk you through the steps of adding alt tags to your existing Shopify product images in bulk. To follow this guide, you must have existing Shopify products that include images AND you must have a G Suite account.
The first step is to get the product data out of Shopify.
Next, you need to open your exported file in a spreadsheet editor. We recommend Google Sheets.
We recommend cleaning up the spreadsheet to make it easier to navigate. We do this by hiding irrelevant fields.
Effective alt tags describe the relevant contents of an image. Relevant content includes all objects contained within the image such as products, product packaging, people, and places. For more information on alt-tag content, see this official Shopify article.2H Media's yellow rubber duck with orange beak
If you're editing in Google Sheets, you need to download your spreadsheet before you can upload it to Shopify.
The final step is to import your updated products back into Shopify.
