Lemma 29.6.7. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of schemes. If $X$ is reduced, then the scheme theoretic image of $f$ is the reduced induced scheme structure on $\overline{f(X)}$.

**Proof.**
This is true because the reduced induced scheme structure on $\overline{f(X)}$ is clearly the smallest closed subscheme of $Y$ through which $f$ factors, see Schemes, Lemma 26.12.7.
