The resulting file from -i6 is d64 regardless of the suffix.

Image format is almost the same as d64! Both is basically a sector-for-sector copy of a disk...

683 sectors of 256 byte resulting in 174848 byte which is the length of a d64 file.
2880 sectors of 512 byte resulting in 1474 560 byte which is the lengt of a standard img file (1,44 MBdisk)

There are no aditional information stored in theese files (othing that isn't on the disk itself...).

So, if you wan't it in image format you can rename .d64 to .img ;-)
