I guess HoJo007 has said it pretty well. If it's appropriate, use an affiliate link but be sure the whole content justifies it. Remember, content is king and there is nothing that will turn a visitor off faster than non stop selling.

My philosophy could be wrong here, but the way I do it is sparingly. If it fits and it's a plain image of the product and associated with a review, I may occasionally have an affiliate link open to the offer from the image. However, I wouldn't recommend doing it with every image and use your best judgement as to where it would "make sense" and where it is simply overkill. Also, I will sometimes add a caption to the picture. For example, if I have a picture of a supplement I am recommending, I may caption it with "Sign up for your Free trial of xyz for a limited time." It's now attached the the picture and pretty clearly states that it will take them to the product. Plus, people are naturally drawn to image captions. Again, don't overdo it, but I think captions are underrated and under-utilized. The rest of your images should just be optimized. Optimize them for keywords, include your url in the images and you can even get some nice backlinks from it that way, too. Hope this helps shed a little light. All the best!

Hello again, I tend to only put links to pictures which are associated with amazon. For example, I take screenshots of other peoples reviews and link them. Check out my latest review post: http://thepcprogrammer.com/2015/03/corsair-vengeance-k70-mechanical-gaming-keyboard-review/
I don't link images of the product because people sometimes might want to click on them to get a larger image, but it's up to you I guess.
I was afraid that my page might become too spammy if I put links on all my pictures.
If you're doing internet marketing though, with reviews of programmes and stuff, I would link the images a few of the images but not all as it might end up being too spammy.
I don't think you should link them all, just link the ones you think would be suitable to link. Hope this helps!

I'm not an expert so I don't know for sure if Google penalises too many affiliate links through pictures but I would just be safe ;)

It's funny you should ask that because that's exactly what I did and am very pleased with it. You can see the way I did it here at http://casinocaper.com
