Most webmasters don’t see any difference between image alt text and title mostly keeping them the same. Here is some in depth information from Annie Smarty on the differences between an image Alt attribute and an image title and standard recommendations of how to use them.

Alt tags describe the image as in "This is an image of a cow". Title adds additional information such as ’Click me and I’ll moo". How hard can it be? So far as using keywords etc I think although Google may like this it goes against the grain for accessibility unless they can legitimately be used.d

@RedEvo - it’s an attribute, not a tag.
