How to List the SHA Digest of Docker Images

In order to get the digest of an image i.e. the SHA256 hash of the image, you can make use of the option --digests along with the docker images command,

# docker images --digests

REPOSITORY    TAG       DIGEST                                                                    IMAGE ID       CREATED        SIZE
ubuntu        latest    sha256:4b1d0c4a2d2aaf63b37111f34eb9fa89fa1bf53dd6e4ca954d47caebca4005c2   3c2df5585507   6 days ago     69.2MB

As you can see, when I used the --digests option, the digest column is made available with 64 characters long sha256 digest of the images.
