    Bill,
    We asked what difference was between 'image' and 'photo'. Based on that
    explanation we felt that the term 'image' was actually 'graphic'. The value
    'graphic' was for business graphics as clarified by Mike below. I will make
    the definitions clearer in the JobX spec. (The value 'image' was confusing
    and seemed to be equivalent to 'photo'. We went with 'photo' since it is
    commonly used by end users today)
    Pete
