  • IMAGE ID column is the first 12 characters of the identifier for an image. You can create many tags of a given image (docker tag[1]), but their IDs will all be the same, as example above.
  • REPOSITORY column comes from the -t flag of the docker build command, or from docker tag-ing an existing image. You can tag images using your prefered nomenclature, but docker will use the tag as the registry location when using docker push or docker pull

Images are stored in docker info | grep "Docker Root Dir"[2]



docker images --filter "dangling=true"
