When exporting images directly from PostgreSQL, convert PostgreSQL's bytea format to base64 using the following in the query:

select encode("product_product"."image",'base64') as "image" from "product_product";

Using .decode('base64') in Python will not work because the data first needs to be decoded from PostgreSQL's bytea format.
