Can I prevent an image created from an instance snapshot from being deleted when the instance is deleted?

I'm trying to use a tool called Packer to create images. It works by launching a temporary instance from a source image, running some provisioning steps, and then taking a snapshot of the instance to make the image. The image gets created but then it disappears when the instance is terminated. I'm wondering if there is some way to prevent this...?

Thanks in advance!!!

not sure. I think the snapshot will be associated with VM and its image.
