Enable Image Optimization with the built-in Image component.

To add Next JS image tag support, we need two more addition in our setup and its ready to use Image tag. These changes are to be made in preview.js and our storybook script in package.json.


import '../styles/globals.css';

import * as nextImage from 'next/image';

Object.defineProperty(nextImage, 'default', {
  configurable: true,
  value: props => <img {...props} />

export const parameters = {
  actions: { argTypesRegex: '^on[A-Z].*' }


"storybook": "start-storybook -s ./public -p 6006",

That is it. Now you can use <Image /> tag in your storybook without any problems.Find the complete project REPO here.
