Don't think you're quite right, or at least that's not what Google says:
apparently it's much more sophisticated than that. Here's part of their
"Google analyzes the text on the page adjacent to the image, the image
caption and dozens of other factors to determine the image content.
Google also uses sophisticated algorithms to remove duplicates and
ensure that the highest quality images are presented first in your
You can use all operators for image search that you would use in a
Google text search. For example, you can use "site:" with image search
to restrict your search to images on a particular website. So, to find
all the pictures of lemurs at the Duke Primate Center, the query would
be " site:duke.edu lemurs"."
I must say that when I used it to find a picture of a particular type of

was called something like 3095472.gif, so it definitely searches more
than the name), and the results load very quickly too.
