I want to save image located in a sprite.texture using json and load it.
Any help would be appreciated.

i already created json file with some data but the images to be saved needs a json pro to teach us.

Not sure what makes you believe storing an image path is any different from storing other information in JSON. I’d argue there is no such thing is a json pro": it’s a way of writing down text-based information in a structured way, nothing advanced.

var data = {}

func save_game():
	data["image_path"] = $Sprite.texture.resource_path

	var file =
	var error ="user://savegame.json", File.WRITE)
	if error == OK:

func load_game():
	var file =
	var error ="user://savegame.json", File.READ)
	if error == OK:
	   data = parse_json(file.get_line())

	$Sprite.texture = load(data["image_path"])

perhaps he wants to store the image itself in the json, encoding to base64 or something?
