For an explanation of the various image formats, load package ImageFormat
from SqueakMap. Read the class comment first, then look at the class
side utility methods. Examples:

  ImageFormat versionDescriptions do: [:e | Transcript cr; show: e]

  (ImageFormat fromFile: Smalltalk imageName) description

Loosely speaking, Squeak 4.6 is image format 6405, and works with Cog
and interpreter VMs. Squeak 5.0 and trunk are image format 6521, and
work with Spur.
