HTML5 canvas Image Tutorial

To create an image with Konva, we can instantiate a Konva.Image() object with image property.

For image property you can use:

  1. instance of window.Image or document.createElement('image')
  2. canvas element
  3. video element

For a full list of attributes and methods, check out the Konva.Image documentation.

If you want to draw SVG image into the canvas take a look into How to draw SVG image post.

imageObj.onload = function () {
var yoda = new Konva.Image({
