If you ad a description on the image and name it accordingly, it will help you with your ranking.
I have blogposts where the competition is fierce on that topic, where I rank in the top 10 to 15 on the topic bur is first on images.
Because I have optimize my images for Google image search, so that they also is a source for traffic.

Search engine never crawl images or it's details, suppose if you are sharing corporate logo and not adding description about Logo then Google not able to identify your image but if you are adding description about images like "corporate logo" and people search on Google about corporate logo then your image will display on image search results.

It will help the crawlers understand the image, because crawlers don't understand images, videos, flash animations.
It will also help if the images doesn't load properly or if the user is using text based browser.

It's just a must to add alt text and title text to your image in terms of onpage SEO. It helps the google bot to understand that there is an image on your website. Since there is multimedia on your website, google might consider it more helpful for the visitors rater than competitor's website which has only text and that would improve your rankings for the ceratin inner page.

When you do onpage for a website, use your keywords or description of image means what is this image about and what is its name etc. When Google bot comes to your site they give preference to images with details. Also, a image must me names using keywords rather naming 32342432.jpg

An image description is a textual, audio or graphical content portraying the image in a representation intelligible by the addressees. The description should be comprehensive as well as perceptible by the target audience.Simply adding an “ALT” tag allows you to include a keyword-rich description for every image on your site.  Including a caption in close proximity to your image can help identify image content, as well as placing the image inside relevant content.

Search Engine crawlers does not recognize any kind of images. They only deals with textual content. So if you provide a proper description to images, they will quickly recognize by Search Engines. Your images will also started to show up for searched terms.

Writing descriptions on a image helps the viewers of it to know about it easily. Even a description assist the people to know what is the exact motive of posting this image and what is the relation of it with the niche.
