    Satellite images or satellite imageries?

    Hi

    my friend is writing a scientific paper, in which he's referring to satellite images. In generall, I assume you refer to "satellite images"...if he is referring to multiple sets/bundles of satellite images, is the expression "satellite imageries" more suitable? Or does satellite imagery only refer to the concept/the idea/the technology of taking satellite images?

    It will appear in the title, so there's not much space for explanation and clarification, that's why I want it to be as suitable as possible!

    Thank you in advance!

    I suggest your friends joins the forum himself. It will be much more helpful for all concerned if he asks his own questions and gets direct answers.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The plural of image is images.
