To work with images in tkinter, Python provides PIL or Pillow toolkit. It has many built-in functions that can be used to operate an image of different formats.
To open an image in a canvas widget, we have use create_image(x, y, image, **options) constructor. When we pass the Image value to the constructor, it will display the image in the canvas.
# Import the required libraries from tkinter import * from PIL import Image, ImageTk # Create an instance of tkinter frame or window win=Tk() # Set the size of the window win.geometry("700x600") # Create a canvas widget canvas=Canvas(win, width=700, height=600) canvas.pack() # Load the image img=ImageTk.PhotoImage(file="Monalisa.png") # Add the image in the canvas canvas.create_image(350, 400, image=img, anchor="center") win.mainloop()
Running the above code will display a window that contains image in the canvas.
