    Can you please confirm whether you are using a pagebuilder to create your content? Some themes or pagebuilder modules may not show the images on the sitemap. You may need to add them via a filter: wpseo_sitemap_urlimages. This filter will then register images to appear on the sitemap. We have more information on this here:

    I have from jetpack. and the “Theme” is mesmerize
    both of them is a premium plan. if you tell me what is this filter and how I can add them to the filter I will do it.

    btw this is my sitemap of the attachment:

    I have so many images in the media section (they are not on the pages, only in the directory)
    but I want Google to index them.
    why did it only take 1 picture from all my pictures?
    how can I add all the pictures to this sitemap?
    i have so many and this can improve my SEO if Google reads all my pictures.

    There’s a difference between the attachment page and the actual image in WordPress. WordPress generates the media (attachment) page for any media file you upload on your site. The media (attachment) page only includes the media file and not any content. So, this would be a thin content page and doesn’t really valuable for users, nor for search engines. So, it is recommended to enable the media (attachment) redirects from Yoast SEO > Search Appearance > Media (attachment) tab.

    On the other hand, Yoast SEO only includes the media (attachment) pages in the sitemap that is attached to a page (at least) on your site. You may have many media files uploaded on your site but they won’t appear in the sitemap unless they are attached to a page.

    In addition, if you go to your post or page sitemap, you’ll see the images column where Yoast SEO is detecting the images from the posts or pages and adding them in the sitemap. So, search engines can crawl them easily.
