Have you configured Search service in SharePoint ? Is your site search working ?
Check in your search results whether those pictures are crawled.

I am not so sure about 2013 but can you navigate to the settings of this app where you can find an option called "Indexed columns". Previous versions when it was a library we had this option through which fields can also be indexed. If you find this or relevant to this option then put a check on those fields and it should crawl.

Check this link.
Over here I found how to configure index columns. If your picture library is what I assumed you should get through this.
Read the column Create a simple or compound index and Create or modify a filtered view based on column indexes.
