How to use Next.js Image

By default, Image component uses Native Image component. If you want to use Next.js Image component, you have to create a new styled component for image and map it to Image component. You can also change the already present styled-component for images on the path ./components/core/button/styled-components in your project.
import Image from 'next/image';
// Using the Next Image component
const StyledImage = styled(Image, styling, componentConfig, extenedBaseConfig);
// if some styling are direct props, you can pass them as props in the styling
props: {
w: 100,
h: 100,
borderRadius: '$full',
// import the createImage function
import { createImage } from '@gluestack-ui/image';
// Understanding the API
const Image = createImage({
Root: StyledImage
// you can also /style/docs/getting-started/styled to style the component
export default () => <Image />;

How to use Expo Image

In expo, Image component doesn't accept dataSet prop in the components. So, you have to pass config to not optimize the Image component on web in the styled function to make it work.
import Image from "expo-image"
// Using the Expo Image component
const StyledImage = styled(Image, styling, componentConfig, extenedBaseConfig)
// import the createImage function
import { createImage } from "@gluestack-ui/image"
// Understanding the API
const Image = createImage({
Root: StyledImage,
export default () => <Image />
