I am trying to read a
png image in python. The
imread function in
scipy is being deprecated and they recommend using
However, I am would rather restrict my usage of external libraries to
matplotlib libraries. Thus, using
scikit image is not a good option for me.
Are there any methods in python or
matplotlib to read images, which are not being deprecated?
With matplotlib you can use (as shown in the matplotlib documentation)
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import matplotlib.image as mpimg img=mpimg.imread('image_name.png')
And plot the image if you want
imgplot = plt.imshow(img)
For the better answer, you can use these lines of code. Here is the example maybe help you :
image = cv2.imread('/home/pictures/1.jpg') plt.imshow(image) plt.show()
imread() you can pass the directory .so you can also use
+ to combine dynamic directories and fixed directory like this:
path = '/home/pictures/' for i in range(2) : image = cv2.imread(str(path)+'1.jpg') plt.imshow(image) plt.show()
Both are the same.
You can also use Pillow like this:
from PIL import Image image = Image.open("image_path.jpg") image.show()
If you just want to read an image in Python using the specified libraries only, I will go with
In matplotlib :
import matplotlib.image read_img = matplotlib.image.imread('your_image.png')
