Notice the descriptive file name, and that the alt tag information is very brief and to the point. You don’t want to stuff alt tags with too many keywords. That would do more harm than good for your search rankings for that image.
Internet users searching for images take on different behavior than when doing a regular web search. They tend to go through more results looking for the results to find what they want. This is good news for website owners. There are a couple of reasons for this. First picking out an image can be more subjective than looking for information on a subject, and people may be looking for something very specific in an image, such as the color, whether it is a photograph or line art, a very specific subject in mind, etc.
Another consideration of the search engines are the contextual text surrounding the image. So make sure that you place the image within the text that is referring to it.
There are multiple useful tags you can use within your sitemap to point out to search engines important information about the images. The limits of URLs and images that can be documented in a sitemap are very high. You can have as many as 1,000 images per page and have as many as 50,000 URLs listed in the sitemap and the sitemap file can be as large as 50MB. You can map images and videos either in your main site map (xml) file or have a file for images and videos.
Below is the opening code for a site map.
The <urlset> code is required to start the map and shows the site mapping protocal being used.
The <url> opening and closing tags must enclose each url being mapped.
The <loc> and </loc> tags show url of where the image file(s) can be found.
