Alt tag length should be not too long as it does not required to tell the whole story. I read somewhere 125 characters to 150 characters are allowed and some says 125 characters are index by search engines.

You have nothing to lose but plenty to get to more appropriate pages for search engines and even possibly increase sales only to change a little tag. This will also make your website more accessible for people with sight problems. So, go ahead to start tagging alternative text descriptions for now.

The alt attribute is commonly, but incorrectly, referred to as the "alt tag". See also. longdesc attribute.

The limit is 1024 Character, but its better if you will choose the short keyword, which will describe your product.

If an image requires a description that exceeds a typical short alt tag description, you can use the 'longdesc' tag to supplement the information. For the benefit of people that use screen readers or mobile devices, please do not use the alt tag to cram keywords. Just use it to provide a short, concise description of the image, and your users will be very happy.

Hi...The required alt attribute specifies an alternate text for an image, if the image cannot be displayed.

The alt attribute provides alternative information for an image if a user for some reason cannot view it (because of slow connection, an error in the src attribute, or if the user uses a screen reader).

Note: Internet Explorer (prior version 9) displays the value of the alt attribute as a tooltip, when mousing over the image. This is NOT the correct behavior, according to the HTML specification.

Tip: To create a tooltip for an image, use the title attribute!
