Instead Google crawls the file name of the image or any link text pointing to an image and make a decision about the type of image based of the texts associated with the image. Google also use very sophisticated algorithm to filter out all the duplicate contents so as you can view the most relevant images for free. This is why when you put any picture on any of your article you need to write the name of that picture, because it will certainly give you some extra traffic generated by people searching Google free images.
