Tkinter Label – Background image
In Tkinter, you can display a background image to a Label widget.
To set a background image for a Label widget in Tkinter, create a PhotoImage object with the image file path, and then pass this PhotoImage object as argument to the image parameter of Label class constructor.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to set an image as background for a Label widget in Tkinter, with examples.
1. Set an image as background to Label widget
In this example, we shall create a Label widget label with some text. Also we have a nice image background-1.png next to our program, and we would set this image as a background to the label widget.
import tkinter as tk # Event handler function for the label click def label_clicked(event): print("Label clicked!") # Create the main window window = tk.Tk() window.title("PythonExamples.org") window.geometry("300x200") # Take a background image background_image = tk.PhotoImage(file="background-1.png") # Create a label widget with background image label = tk.Label(window, image=background_image, text="Hello World!", compound="center") # Pack the label widget to display it label.pack() # Run the application window.mainloop()
We have set compound="center" so that the compound of the image and text would be center aligned.
