Default Are product images SEO friendly?

I see more and more people searching products by images instead of web text. Are the images loaded in the store SEO friendly. When I check "more info" I don't see any tag with the image. Do images have a title in the code? is that title the same as the product title? If not, what would take to do this since I believe without an image title google would not know what that image is when people search by images.

I am editing my previous post because This is what I see in the page source ...
<a href="http://thriftytraveling.com/store/product/buy/777700000194888/20-piece-compact-camping-travel-first-aid-kit/" title="20-Piece Compact Camping Travel First Aid Kit" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41pAaVgLmKL.jpg" alt="20-Piece Compact Camping Travel First Aid Kit" title="20-Piece Compact Camping Travel First Aid Kit" /> </a>

So maybe the image titles are there. What the rel="nofollow" means? are we telling robots not to follow?

So, my question is still..will google IMAGE search find the store product images? any way to optimize it more since I think lots of people search images more than text?

Hi

Images have an alt tag that describes the image. The code you posted has both title and alt.

Here's more info about the <img> tag: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_img.asp

I don't know exactly what Google looks for in terms of images but I'm sure having an alt attribute helps.
