Image Title is same like post title, it tells the reader what image is all about, when user hovers mouse over image, image title appears, so always add relevant titles to images, as images are for users not for search engines, but it is always good to add relevant keywords to titles.
In order to add title all you need to do is upload and add image to your blog post then >> click on image >> Properties >> and where it says Title Text add your title.
3) ALT Text :-
This is for Search Engines, so adding ALT text is very important, when search engine bot visits page, it can’t understand what image is all about, so ALT text is basically a HTML code which describes the image. So same like Title add ALT Text, do add your targeted keyword in ALT text.

Last but not least, always add captions to your image, caption is the text which appears below image, this text is also used to describe image to the visitors, but do try to add your keywords in captions, but make sure you add relevant keywords in captions. Caption is simply text which appears below image and it is used to describe image.
Things To Avoid :-
Images are good for SEO if done correctly, but do not try keyword stuffing in Image Title and ALT Text.
