Below is the code for converting to Base 64:

var img = document.createElement('Image');
var canvas = document.createElement('Canvas');
function getBase64Image(p){
       canvas.width = img.width;
       canvas.height = img.height;
       var ctx = canvas.getContext("2d");
       ctx.drawImage(img, 0, 0);
       var imgStr = canvas.toDataURL("image/jpg");
       alert("image loaded----\n"+imgStr);
   img.setAttribute("src", p);
