Stop adding random string into image url

I’m having problem that each time build hugo makes new image URL after cropping by adding a random string like home-cover_huced643f4f523a838514eb9186dcef3c6_195383_2200x0_resize_q75_h2_box.webp while file name is home-cover.jpg. I’m okay with consistent name but each time new URL breaks SEO which is not what I want. Is there any fix?

First, the string isn’t random. It’s a cache key that includes a hash and image parameters.

Second, according to John Mueller of Google, if you already provide an alt attribute the filename makes little to no difference. I’ve written about this before:

And I’m sure your alt attribute is excellent in order to comply with accessibility guidelines.

Third, if you want to rename the image, use the resources.Copy function.


Thank you for guidance will check this.
