How to get alt text for an image?

How do I get just the alternate text for the image ID for that article, (just the text, not the image)?

Sorry if this is obvious and I’m just missing it somehow…

EDIT: The reason I need this is because I want to add a title tag that uses the alt text, so that the text comes up as a tooltip when a user rolls over the image.

The txp:image_info tag is your friend here.

Something like this will fetch just the alt tag for the assigned article image, if it’s used:

<if::article_image>
<txp:images><txp:image_info type="alt" /></txp:images>
</if::article_image>
