This article is inspired by Adrian’s blog at PyImageSearch. In one of his articles he asked about what drives me, what makes me want to be an “OpenCV Ninja” and perhaps recount the days about finding magic in coding. I started out in computer programming in the faithful year of 1999 during my 9th grade when I wanted to […]
This article is about “how to” build a production workstation for audio/video, signal processing, machine learning and large data analysis projects using open source software. I am currently working on a PC with Intel® Core™ i5-3330 CPU @ 3.00GHz × 4, 7.7 GiB memory and 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Here is a very clear explanation for why […]
In this python exercise we convert a color image to grayscale and then apply threshold filter to it. The threshold filter converts the grayscale image to a binary image. We also save the final image to the working folder. Note that a function called “shape” is used from the numpy library. The shape function gives the […]
In this python exercise we do a very basic chore, retrive an image from a folder and display it in a window.
I’m writing all this so that you, the reader, can hopefully learn from my mistakes and not do these steps. Or, if you have already done these kinds of things then I want to tell you that there is definitely a way to rectify all of it and make OpenCV work with Python on Mac […]
You are likely to be sorry if you casually started installing Python and OpenCV like me as documented here. You might have read stuff online and tired installing python26 or python27 as well as numpy and opencv using macports hoping that your py scripts will conveniently import cv Of course then you must have gotten stuck while […]
