les or des?

Hi, I saw the below sentence:

Zoé découpe les images de papier.

Why not des instead of les? 

I believe it should be des images de papier because images are plural

Thank you

MaartenC1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

«les images» is in plural form, as is «des images». The first 'the images', the second 'some images', so it depends on context which would be used. In the absence of context, either can be correct.
