Files that contain the .image file extension are most commonly associated with bitmap image sources that are used on a Unix-based operating system. These images are referenced by the operating system when a user opens the associated application.
The ShrinkWrap image software also uses the .image file extension. The ShrinkWrap program creates a copy of the data on a Mac-formatted disk. These IMAGE files can then be used by the computer user as a virtual hard drive on the Mac computer.
The .image file suffix is also used by the Disk Copy software. This software is similar in nature to the ShrinkWrap software application and uses the .image file extension for the same purpose.
