Using languages in your OG image

Learn how to use other languages in the text of your OG image.

You can use the following code sample to explore using parameters and different content types with next/og. To learn more about OG Image Generation, see Open Graph Image Generation.

Create an api route with route.tsx in /app/api/og/ and paste the following code:

import { ImageResponse } from 'next/og';
// App router includes @vercel/og.
// No need to install it.
export async function GET() {
  return new ImageResponse(
          fontSize: 40,
          color: 'black',
          background: 'white',
          width: '100%',
          height: '100%',
          padding: '50px 200px',
          textAlign: 'center',
          justifyContent: 'center',
          alignItems: 'center',

Preview the OG route locally by running the following command:

pnpm dev

Then, browse to http://localhost:3000/api/og. You will see the following image:
