Docker How To Download Image

Downloading docker images is easy.

First, make sure you are logged in so that you can pull images from Docker Hub:


docker login

You can search for an image that you want like this. For example search for mysql:


docker search mysql   

Pull the image down like this:


docker pull mysql     

If you want to download the images to a machine without internet access you can first pull them down to a host that does have access and then transfer them over.

Save image to file:


sudo docker save -o my_image.docker ubuntu

Load the image on the other host:


sudo docker load -i my_image.docker

If you want to import/export images take a look at our guide here: Docker How To Export An Image.
