NAME
       docker-image-import - Import the contents from a tarball to create a
       filesystem image

SYNOPSIS
       docker image import [OPTIONS] file|URL|- [REPOSITORY[:TAG]]

DESCRIPTION
       Create a new filesystem image from the contents of a tarball (.tar,
       .tar.gz, .tgz, .bzip, .tar.xz, .txz) into it, then optionally tag it.

EXAMPLES
Import from a remote location
              # docker image import http://example.com/exampleimage.tgz example/imagerepo

Import from a local file
       Import to docker via pipe and stdin:

              # cat exampleimage.tgz | docker image import - example/imagelocal

       Import with a commit message.

              # cat exampleimage.tgz | docker image import --message "New image imported from tarball" - exampleimagelocal:new

       Import to a Docker image from a local file.

              # docker image import /path/to/exampleimage.tgz

Import from a local file and tag
       Import to docker via pipe and stdin:

              # cat exampleimageV2.tgz | docker image import - example/imagelocal:V-2.0

Import from a local directory
              # tar -c . | docker image import - exampleimagedir

Apply specified Dockerfile instructions while importing the image
       This example sets the docker image ENV variable DEBUG to true by
       default.

              # tar -c . | docker image import -c="ENV DEBUG true" - exampleimagedir

When the daemon supports multiple operating systems
       If the daemon supports multiple operating systems, and the image being
       imported does not match the default operating system, it may be
       necessary to add --platform. This would be necessary when importing a
       Linux image into a Windows daemon.

              # docker image import --platform=linux .\linuximage.tar

See also
       docker-export(1) to export the contents of a filesystem as a tar
       archive to STDOUT.

OPTIONS
       -c, --change=
           Apply Dockerfile instruction to the created image

       -h, --help[=false]
           help for import

       -m, --message=""
           Set commit message for imported image

       --platform=""
           Set platform if server is multi-platform capable
