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 (20 words or less) that describes an image when the cursor rolls over it. See
Accessibility and 508 Compliance for
- Captions. Keep
captions brief (approximately 2025 words) and use keywords
- Photo credits. Include the name
of the person who took the photo, who owns the photo, and when
it was taken.
- Photo releases. Photos cannot be used without the appropriate releases (e.g., model, property). We have developed appropriate releases for your use. Please request these forms from your grant monitor.
Submit tables and graphs in separate electronic files because
they are often created in specialized software. Remember to provide data points for graphs.
