Thanks for this use case. I need to experiment with this one a bit, as the canvas in the example in the article takes the img as an input (rather than a URL):


In that case, you can get away with not knowing what the source is, as the canvas will just be overlaid with whatever image data the img element contains. 

Can anyone with experience working with canvas please comment.
