What is an Image Block in Gutenberg

Since the Gutenberg editor was released, creating blocks and working with them became easier. Talking about the Image blocks, using them you can build a bunch of beautiful and contemporary layouts.

Let’s move on to the Image settings tab. Here you are able to write the Alt text of the Gutenberg Image block.

Such a text is very important for the SEO optimization of your webpage and also for the visitors. In case your image doesn’t showcase on your pages because of the low loading speed, the Alt text will appear and inform people about the meaning of the image.

In this tab, you can also set the width and height of the image. You can also define the way to showcase it inside the section.
