I don't know if I understand what you're trying to achieve, but if you just want to create an arbitrary number based on the image contents, you can apply a checksum to the the image contents.  Try an MD5 [1] or SHA1 hash, or even a CRC.

For list-related administrative tasks: 

I would like to have an information. 
I want to assign a numeric value to an image (GIF format). 
When the scheme program would evaluate the image, it would give back the numeric value. 
How can I do it? 

Thank you in advance.
