Both and are ambiguous, the tag description is neither helpful. There are at least two meanings that I can think of:

  • image in the meaning of "picture" or "photo"

I'd drop (blacklist) both the and tag and tag these to or . For , it should be clear that this is really about editing pictures and such. The disadvantage is that visitors are likely searching for "image" or "imaging" instead of "disk image" when they mean to write an image to a USB or something. The second solution is to keep the tag, but allow for both meanings, but add extra tags to questions as needed.
