I don't see this in Inventory Master anywhere. Is there somewhere you can assign an alt Image name to an image, so when a cursor hovers over an image, it shows the name you've assigned to it?

Are you talking about your products?? If so, that is already there.... The Alt tag defaults to the product name, for example, here is the code from the image on one of your products:

<img class="main_image" src="images/full/f9.jpg" alt="Canare F09" name="pimage" />

So the Alt is there, but keep in mind that Firefox won't show it, for it to show up in firefox, you have to add a Title="Canare F09" to the code.

and really, no one cares much about those alt tags anyway.

I just started using overlib to show larger images of swatches, and you can add titles to that as well. You can see that here:

http://www.profiledproducts.com/products/90-Tempe12/571-Tempe-12-Girls/

By the way... if you're on that page for more than 20 seconds...you're really not checking out the code. :-)

so the alt is there which will help in google a little, but you will only see the hover if you use internet explorer, or do something with the title tag as well, or use an after market tool tip like overlib.

Thanks for the tip. VPASP was able to tag the code so hovering causes the alt tag to show up in Firefox as well as IE.

Yup... by addig the title= you get it in firefox, and keeping the alt= works in ie... So now your code is this:

<img src="images/webredcoReverse.gif" width="325" height="146" alt="Redco Audio" title="Redco Audio" />
