General Image Search SEO Tips
- Add unique keywords to your image file names. Don't spam it though.
- Proximity of keywords to images is useful.
- Large images seem to do well.
- Use the alt attribute on your images.
Example: <IMG src="http://www.example.com/images/yoko-ono/yoko-laughing.jpg" alt="Yoko Ono smiling.">
- Use the title attribute on links to your images
Example: <A href="http://www.example.com/yoko-ono.jpg" title="Yoko Ono smiling">Yoko Ono smiling</A>

Very helpful links guys thanks!
I'll also reinforce that in addition to alt attributes (and preferably an absolute URI), IMHO it is a very good idea to specify height and width. Think about it. :)
Some people also argue that image title matters but I don't see it.
Text around the image OTOH...

For image LINKS, I use alts as anchor and titles to introduce the image. Thats not per-spec, but works for me.

I've always used 'alt' but never 'titles'. Do they perform like 'alt'? I've heard something about 'titles' working like alt in FF and other browsers. If so, then I would want to use both, huh.

Technically you're supposed to use titles on the link to an image. If the image is being displayed within the web page then the proper attribute to use is the Alt attribute.
