How to upload an image from HTML5 canvas?

Since Uploadcare supports uploading from a file object, you need to perform the following steps:

  1. Encode a canvas to a blob object.
  2. Upload this object to Uploadcare via uploadcare.fileFrom('object', blob);

For example:

canvas.toBlob(function (blob) {
  var file = uploadcare.fileFrom('object', blob);
  file.done(function (fileInfo) {
    // file is uploaded.
}, 'image/jpeg', 0.9);

Keep in mind, that canvas.toBlob is not supported by some browsers. If you’re using an unsupported browser, you need to use a polyfill to implement this method.

For example:

if (!HTMLCanvasElement.prototype.toBlob) {
 Object.defineProperty(HTMLCanvasElement.prototype, 'toBlob', {
  value: function (callback, type, quality) {
    var binStr = atob( this.toDataURL(type, quality).split(',')[1] ),
        len = binStr.length,
        arr = new Uint8Array(len);
    for (var i=0; i<len; i++ ) {
     arr[i] = binStr.charCodeAt(i);
    callback( new Blob( [arr], {type: type || 'image/png'} ) );
