What is the secret behind getting my site images found on SE Image Searches

I have named my image 'big-red-toaster.jpg' (example)
Given it's alt tag as 'big red toaster'
and it links to 'big-red-toaster.htm'
I have also submitted the page the image(s) are on

Have I done all the right things ? or is there something I am missing ? is
there a max image size (px or kb) ?

I have found that doing an image search (for a product I wanted to buy) a
very speedy and accurate method of shopping... (""s
are fine, but Image search gives the bigger picture)

...Surely the reciprocal works for those who are selling ?
