Images – The Best of Jean Michel Jarre is a compilation album by Jean Michel Jarre originally released in 1991.

Unlike previous Jean Michel Jarre compilation albums this album isn't just a collection of separate tracks. Instead, Jarre blended all tracks together into a single mix and thus creating an audio adventure through his work to date.

Apart from Jarre's best known tracks the album also contains two previously unreleased tracks composed for the canceled Teotihuacan solar eclipse concert scheduled for July 11, 1991, one rare track ("Moon Machine") as well as three new versions of older work.

At the time of release two versions were issued with different track listings. In 1997 a new version was released with both track listings combined and a few extra tracks added.

The compilation was also released in VHS format in 1991. The VHS contains all Jarre's videos from 1976 to 1991.
