What is the basic difference between container and an image in Docker?

I am unable to understand these terms clearly and I also was unable to find the genuine reference to study these two terms.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks

 Below is reference which you can follow to know about images in details:

A container is an active (or inactive if exited) stateful instantiation of an image.So you can follow below reference to know more about container.

I hope the above information would be helpful for you.
