How to submit images/pictures to Google

You can't.

As cbpayne says, you can't directly; but you can do things to increase your chances. Your objective is to make sure that Google can tie your image down to a keyword.

Easiest way to do that is via the filename, followed by the alt text. Don't spam or keyword stuff it, but be descriptive.

So, for example, if you have a picture of a dog, don't just called it "dog.jpg", get the make of dog into the filename, so use "dog-labrador.jpg", and use the alt text correctly, so something like "A Labrador dog.".

In addition,

keep an eye out for google's image bot..
in your log files to verify your images have been picked up.

I have seen lots of hits on my site by this bot several months ago, but I have not seen any evidence of an update to Google images since a very long time. IMO, their image database is very poor as compared to all the others.

It isn't a particularly shy bot. I can't seem to keep it off of my sites. Give it a little time and it'll come though no doubt about it.

Last time the image bot paid our site a visit was 08/Nov/2003

Google images = one big joke.
Haven't been updated for over a year now.
