It is very easy for WordPress user because it will give the option to include a title and a caption when you upload images. At this time you have the option to provide descriptive information and give Google a sense of what the image is all about.

Coherent the image in context

Just like the the filename and alt text, Google also uses the content of the webpage to determine what an image is about. So try to make connection between images and content for better SERPs.

Quality of the Image

The quality of  images is very important, always try to use sharp, colorful and visually-rich images to get better rank and for Google SERPs.
