What are these Tags?

Alt- It stands for Alternative information. This information is defined just in case the image fails to load and that's where this alternative text is displayed instead.

Title- It stands for the title of the image. What the image is and what it really is about goes into this field. This is the very same attribute that appears when you hover over images you find on the internet most of the times.

How to implement them in images?

When you upload a certain image into a blog post in blogger in the Compose section in the blogger editor, all you have to do is left click on the desired image. Almost immediately a strip blue in color appears where you have options to increase/decrease the size of the image, add a caption and an option to edit the properties.

 When you click on Properties, a popup window emerges and two text fields appear, first being the Title attribute and the second being the alt attribute, as shown in the image below.

In the title tag field, you have to write what the image is about i.e., what it really is and in the alt tag field, it's recommended that you can include a link to the post or a link to the website in case the image fails to load.
Now you can fill in the appropriate details according to the kind of image present.
