Exactly as the subject. When mousing over an image I get "imagename.jpg</a>"

It's really annoying as I use my images as links to internal wiki pages. How do I prevent this from showing or provide some meaningful alt text?

    To add alt text to your images:

    1. Use the Image Embed button to insert an image. It will generate a link like this:
    [[File:554695 | class=media-item-align-none | image.jpg]]
    Or like this, if you specified the image size:
    [[File:554695 | class=media-item-align-center | 100x100px | image.jpg ]]

    2. To the right of the file name but inside the double brackets, add a space, a pipe, a space, and your alt text:
    [[File:554695 | class=media-item-align-none | image.jpg | Alt Text]]
    [[File:554695 | class=media-item-align-center | 100x100px | image.jpg | Alt Text]]
