Do posts need metadata and images to rank/index well?

Or does this not impact ranking? By metadata I mean things like tags, categories, meta tag, etc. By images I primarily mean a post image.

not necessarily,
using categories & tags properly will help in interlinking, performing a better silo, along with the pictures, both could be helpful for SEO,
but that doesn't necessarily mean you need these in order to rank

Metadata and Image can let the search engine crawler know what you offer, Google's algorithm understand whether the contents of your website is relevant and valuable for your visitor.
A meta description tag can make greater use of header tags, both have greater influence in ranking a site.

For the search algorithm, metadata acts as a trailer or highlights of the website which will help them to know what your page is about thus helps in ranking.
