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, the most of the tracks appear in edited form and segué together.

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") and 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.
