Why don't I see the Generate button?

Double check that your account has OpenAI Integrations ENABLED.  Accounts with this disabled won't see any AI features including the Generate button for alt text.

Is any data shared outside of Sprout with 3rd parties?

Yes, if you click the Generate button, the photo is shared with OpenAI. If you don't want any data shared with OpenAI, you can disable all OpenAI features with the toggle in settings.  For more details, see:
