    yeah image are good seo. image name with keywords and alt tags help in generic traffic. but not for niche site. eg. if its about insurance , weight loss etc. people dont search for images. but if you are having info blog or magazine site. then its very helpful

    The most significant factor in ranking for an image search is the contents of the image alt property. ALT is a required element for images and can only be used for image tags because its specific purpose is to describe images.

    If you are using alt tag for your images with the targeted keywords then it is good in terms of SEO

    If your website is mainly image, it's very good. I have photography blog, it's nowhere in web result, but in page 3 for image result and I'm getting approx. 300 UV's daily, 90% from Google Image Search

    you can vary the keywords you used in your images so that it will not look spammy to search engines.
