Copy existing images

Is is possible to copy an image with creating it again from a backup?

We would like to have a process where we have a nightly process for creating images from the latest production backups. Then, at selected times, developers can clone these databases. But if they clone the images that we generate every night, it won't work since we either can't overwrite the image or we have to first delete the image and all it's clones.

Ideally we want a way to create a copy of the latest image of each database and then create a clone from the image instead. That way, the "latest" images will be not be cloned directly.

Has anyone done anything similar or have some recommendations?
