In May 1972 TRS (Tempo Record Sales) established the new Image label. It proved very successful, releasing singles and albums by noted Australian acts, as well as international recordings released under licence from overseas labels. In 1974 John MacDonald purchased Image from TRS (which went out of business in mid-1976). Image continues as a successful independent label to the present. It now includes the recording and publishing assets of Ron Tudor's Fable group, which were purchased in 1986.
 The Image catalogue begins with IS-113. This was because the first nine numbers had been used for the shortlived Tempo label (TS-101 to TS-109) and the next three were used for three singles released under licence from the US Shelter label (SS-110 to SS-112).
