docker-image-save - Man Page

Save one or more images to a tar archive (streamed to STDOUT by default)


docker image save [Options] IMAGE [IMAGE...]


Produces a tarred repository to the standard output stream. Contains all parent layers, and all tags + versions, or specified repo:tag.

Stream to a file instead of STDOUT by using -o.


Save all fedora repository images to a fedora-all.tar and save the latest fedora image to a fedora-latest.tar:

$ docker image save fedora > fedora-all.tar
$ docker image save --output=fedora-latest.tar fedora:latest
$ ls -sh fedora-all.tar
721M fedora-all.tar
$ ls -sh fedora-latest.tar
367M fedora-latest.tar
