I'm unable to create a docker machine using the access token generated by my DigitalOcean account

This is the error that I get:

$ docker-machine create --driver digitalocean --digitalocean-access-token=<my_token> flask
Running pre-create checks...

Try adding --digitalocean-image docker to your docker-machine command. The error being displayed is because the DigitalOcean API is not being sent a proper image ID or slug to know which disk image to use when creating your droplet.
