Help with tutorials to get started with Canvas on Grafan

Hi everyone, I just started with grafana, i have been able to build some exciting panels with it, i am stuck with grafana canvas.
i have no background knowledge on the use of svg to design a good panel on canvas.
can anyone suggest the path i will take to start building on with grafana canvas.
i have been trying to import png and svg images into grafana using my command prompt but it looks like there is some permission issues with grafana accepting images on windows.
is there any video tutorials or step by step approach for dummies to get started using canvas. thanks.

@ezekielimonitie We created a YouTube tutorial with some basic information and advanced elements.

Let us know if it helps.

Thanks so much for the video it was helpful, but meanwhile, I tried to export a png and svg to my Grafana using the copy command on my PowerShell.

Below is the code

cp C:\Users\EzekielSimeon\downloads\pump.png c:\Program Files\GrafanaLabs\grafana\public\img

and the error message I get is

Copy-Item : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument 'Files\GrafanaLabs\grafana\public\img

Thanks for your attention

@ezekielimonitie Do you copy as an Administrator? It’s a system folder, and your user doesn’t have write permissions.

Thanks so much, with your help i have been able to import svg images in my canva i really appreciate, if you don’t mind answering, I am having diifficulty drawing lines, like drawing lines in different angle to link my svg images together.
can you help me how i can go about that thanks.

Thanks so much I have done that. I was able to import images and through the help of the videos I have been able to do a little thing.

The challenge now is linking my svg images with a line tending to different angles and also changing the color of the line.

Can you help me on how I can go about it?
