How Much Text is Needed for Image Galleries to Rank?

Good evening guys,

One of my sites is very image centric. As are the other sites in my niche. One of the things I noticed, is that with over 100 links on a page, on a website that doesn't have much text, doesn't rank. I've tested it a few times and the target page, stops ranking and another page, that has less links ranks instead, but usually not as well.

I wondered how much text, is needed on a page, to help prevent this from happening?

In one instance, a page went from not being able to rank for over a year, to number 1 within 48 hours. Just from reducing the number of links. It's very odd but evidently in this particular setup, there is a such thing as too many links.

Having too much text will look out of place in a gallery. Any ideas?

Theoretically it is possible for a page with zero text to rank and it is also possible for a page with great content to never rank. That is because other factors like link popularity and competition levels impact the rankings.

I typically like to have at least 800 words on my content pages. For a large image gallery I personally would like a bare minimum of 300 words. I've had good results using mturk to generate image descriptions.
