This contains the serialization of the image according to the format. The value could represent a bitmap, image such as a GIF file, or drawing 'instructions' using a standard such as Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG) (which is XML based).

format : String (0 1); -- source Image

This indicates the format of the content - which is how the string content should be interpreted. The following values are reserved: SVG, GIF, PNG, JPG, WMF, EMF, BMP. In addition the prefix 'MIME: ' is also reserved. This option can be used as an alternative to express the reserved values above, for example 'SVG' could instead be expressed as 'MIME: image/svg+xml'.
