How to pull image from Docker registry

If you are here, then I am assuming you would have knowledge of what docker is and why do we use it.

To fetch any image from any docker registry to your local workstation is called docker pull.

We will use command   docker pull <image_name> to pull image from the docker hub.

In the following example we will pull one image hello-world from docker hub.

D:\Docker> docker pull hello-world

It will give output something like this

Using default tag: latest

latest: Pulling from library/hello-world
