    okay I'm gonna explain way too easy for you to understand. Like, search engines can't read images, they can read texts but not the same thing with images. That's why we have to use alt tag to give a bit description of the images to search engine. use the keywords to put in alt tag. a tip to get a higher rank.

    The required alt attribute specifies an alternate text for an image, if the image cannot be displayed. The alt attribute provides alternative information for an image if a user for some reason cannot view

    An alt tag is a text alternative for an image on your page. The alt tag will be read by screen readers and other site readers as an alternative to the image itself.
