    so the alt attribute

    <img src="imagename.jpg" alt="Keywords here" />
    is useful for SEO.

    the title attribute

    <img src="imagename.jpg" title="description or instructions here" />
    is not useful for SEO.

    Putting an ALT attribute in an IMG element is not only advisable for SEO but it is also a requirement of correct XHTML code. To properly validate a document the IMG elements need to have an ALT attribute.

    The ALT attribute becomes much more powerful when the IMG element is a link - eg

    <a href="home.html"><img src="imagename.jpg" alt="Keywords here" /></a>
    So I advise you use relevant descriptive ALT attributes in your IMG elements on all pages especially when they are links to internal or extenral URLs.

    Yes always use a ALT tag for images.Google cannot crawl images.
