.... and I just tried an experiment. Looks like Google is indexing my gallery just fine. Tried searching for www.coolscifi.com/gallery
and got hits so I tried the name of file, "sammermountains" that I know is unique to my site and it came up.
Anybody have specs on whether or not Google actually even looks at the ALT tag or just the file name?
EDIT -- Just tried experiment #3, searching for "skwirlinator" is one of the members of my site. Got all of the public images that he's uploaded so it must be looking at more then just the name. HHmm...
