Image Alt Tag
Image ALT Tag is one of the most important elements of SEO. It's a part of On-Page Optimization. ALT tag (That means alternative text or alternative name) is a feature that should be added to any visible item on your web page. It's mainly used on photos to offer a text alternative to describe the image in details.  

Here's a quotation from Wikipedia about ALT tags. According to them:

“The alt attribute is commonly, but incorrectly, referred to as an image’s “alt tag”. It is not intended to provide “pop up” text or tooltips when a user’s mouse hovers over the image, though alt text has historically been presented in this way in some web browsers; HTML’s title attribute is intended for supplementary information that can be used in this way. (To use alt correctly and suppress the tooltip that some web browsers generate, a web author can use an empty title attribute.)”.

While downloading images, generally we save those in our hard drive by naming untitled.jpg; untitled-1.jpg etc. After downloading, changing these kind of names by our keywords is very helpful. Or, we can open the downloaded images with photoshop or other graphic design software and edit and then, save the images with the keywords. If you want to upload an image related to Web design, then you should rename the image as "web-design.jpg".

But, it's not enough. Search Robots can't recognize multimedia if it isn't defined by ALT tag. So, Adding ALT tag is necessary to tell the Search  Robots that, what kind of image you are using. Using Image ALT tag  helps you in Search Engine Rankings.
