    He wants to index images not to stop. Anyways, webmaster, you can use image sitemap or use robot.txt file to index images. I have heard about image sitemap but haven't found any site which I can make image sitemap for my site. I am using robot.txt file to index images. Don't forget to use caption on every images cause using caption on images is the faster way to get indexed.

    use this code

    If you want index images use this in robots.txt

    User-agent: *
    Allow: /images/

    Hi,

    I would suggest you to optimize your images by using alt tags and title tags. For indexing use
    User-agent: *
    Allow: /images/
    to index your images.

    To get listed in google image results, here are my recommendations.


    it’s actually amazingly simple in all reality, however not many understand this topic.


    I was building links the other day and requested a link from someone. They requested a link back (of course), within their reciprocal link exchange request they asked me to link to an image. After thinking about it, out of curiosity, I asked if this was to improve google image results. The answer was yes!


    This website managed to obtain top Google Image results for the term Logo Design.


    When images appear in Google’s results, heavy placement depends on 2 major factors which fall in to normal SEO rules.


    * The image file name should be keyword rich. Picture1.jpg won’t perform as well as logo_design.jpg
    * Include the keyword you are focusing on within an inbound link to your image.
    * Place the image on your website, and surround it with keyword rich text, also add Alt text to the image specifying what it is.


    So, let’s say you wanted a picture of your dog to appear under the Google search phrase “Dog Pictures” since it is searched 50,000 times per month in Google, and you really want your dog to be popular. You would simply snap a picture of your dog, then you should name your file something like dog_pictures.jpg - After creating this image, you need to obtain links to it from other relevant website’s. The more links the better!. The link pointing to your image should include the anchor text Dog Pictures as well. So your link should look like this - Dog Pictures


    If you decide to create links to your image using a thumbnail of your image, make sure that you use the ALT text “Dog Pictures” for the image attributes.

    Use Alt tag on your image and for index
    User-agent: *
    Allow: /images/

    With this you can easily index your image on search engine.

    hey!! i think this will help you..

    1. Anchor Text That Points To Your Image [= hyperlinks buried in descriptive text on other pages, your and other sites, and from other sites pages]
    2. Alt text [= human friendly descriptive tags placed inside your images]
    3. Image Filename [= 100MainStAlbanyNYHome.jpg or LosAngelesCASushiHotTunaRoll.jpeg]
    4. Textual Content On The Page With The Image [ = particularly text near your image]
    5. Page Title
    6. Image Sitemap [= list of images accessible to Google helps tell about images]
    7. Computer Vision [= technology attempts to duplicate human vision by electronically perceiving and understanding an image]

    I can see rest of the users are advising you to use ‘allow’ in robots.txt file. Just to tell you, by default, all the files are allowed... You can just use ‘disallow’.
    Coming back to your question. Yes, there is image sitemap which you can use to get you images indexed fast and ranked in search results.

    You need to allow images in your index so that your images would be indexed by Google or other search engines.
