gcloud compute images create NAME [--description DESCRIPTION] [--source-disk-zone SOURCE_DISK_ZONE] [--source-disk SOURCE_DISK | --source-uri SOURCE_URI] [GLOBAL-FLAG ...]
gcloud compute images create is used to create custom disk images. The resulting image can be provided during instance or disk creation so that the instance attached to the resulting disks has access to a known set of software or files from the image.
Images can be created from gzipped compressed tarball containing raw disk data or from existing disks in any zone.
Images are global resources, so they can be used across zones and projects.

NAMEThe name of the image to create.
--description DESCRIPTIONAn optional, textual description for the image being created.--source-disk SOURCE_DISK
A source disk to create the image from. The value for this option can be the name of a disk with the zone specified via --source-disk-zone flag.--source-disk-zone SOURCE_DISK_ZONE
This flag is mutually exclusive with --source-uri.
The zone of the disk specified by --source-disk. If not specified, you will be prompted to select a zone.--source-uri SOURCE_URI
To avoid prompting when this flag is omitted, you can set the compute/zone property:
$ gcloud config set compute/zone ZONE
A list of zones can be fetched by running:
$ gcloud compute zones list
To unset the property, run:
$ gcloud config unset compute/zone
Alternatively, the zone can be stored in the environment variable CLOUDSDK_COMPUTE_ZONE.
The full Google Cloud Storage URI where the disk image is stored. This file must be a gzip-compressed tarball whose name ends in .tar.gz.
This flag is mutually exclusive with --source-disk.
Run $ gcloud help for a description of flags available to all commands.
