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.".

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.

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