Upload settings

Images stored in your account can have a title which can be displayed on the site.  A descriptive title is a great way to help with your site's Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as it helps search engines to catalog and index the contents of your site.

If you wish to automatically title your image uploads with their file names, you can enable this via the Upload Settings.
