How to open image image from local file directory?

how to open image image from local file directory?

please help me
i want to open an image in the dashboard from local file in the raspberry pi?

Loading an image (or any file for that matter) from the machine where node-red is running is as simple as using and file in node.

I'm gonna hazard a guess that you want to do more than just load it. Perhaps edit it? Display it in a dashboard?

There are plenty of examples if you search.

Hi - Look in your settings.js file for this httpStatic section, something like this:

    // When httpAdminRoot is used to move the UI to a different root path, the
    // following property can be used to identify a directory of static content
    // that should be served at http://localhost:1880/.
    httpStatic: '/home/pi/public',

As it suggests, you can then serve all the PI's local files from under that directory.
Just make sure to follow the instructions on that first line (set a different root path),
since the default url '/' will overlap with the urls to your local files.

Is this what you are looking to do?

If you want to load and process an image, you could use noee-red-contrib-image-tools

As it load an image from file location and can convert an image to base64 you can inject that into a UI template node for displaying it in the dashboard.

want to display the image captured from raspberry pi camera. i have got
the camerapi node but it stores in /home/pi/pictures directory i want to display every image captured during a button touch.
