    Hi,

    To all SEO experts should I add a nofollow tag to my links in images?
    for example I have :
    <a title="title" href="http://www.externallink.com" target="_blank"><img id="image753" src="http://www.domain.com/images.jpg" alt="text" width="100" height="100" /></a>

    Should I add rel="nofollow" ?
    My doubt is if I add a nofollow link will google stop displaying my images on google images?
    Will it matter If I add noffolow tags to help me increase rankings?

    Not an SEO expert but IMO yes you should add the nofollow to your external links. As long is there is no noindex meta attribute, robots.txt etc. for that page, google should index all content and images on that page.
