Below code snippet will explain more detail about the usage.

function themename_preprocess_panels_pane(&$variables) {
  $variables['title_attributes_array']['class'][] = 'your class';

  $variables['attributes]['class'][] = 'your class';

To add class to img tags which has specific image style

  if ($variables['style_name'] == 'your style name') {
    $variables['attributes']['class'][] = 'your class';
