The Image Class

The Image class inherits from Resource.

Valid values are: aki, ari, ami, raw, iso, vhd, vdi, qcow2, or vmdk. The disk format of a VM image is the format of the underlying disk image. Virtual appliance vendors have different formats for laying out the information contained in a VM disk image.
