When you need to save a canvas image as an image file, Canvas2Image library is a commonly-used solution. Unfortunately, however, this library does not work well with some browsers such as Internet Explorer.

As an alternative and cross-browser solution, we prepared canvas2png.js script that works with all major browsers. This script saves a canvas image as a PNG file with the help of save.php script. canvas2png.js provides only one function, canvas2png(), that takes an HTMLCanvasElement as an argument and can be used in the following way.

var canvas = document.getElementById("mycanvas");
