How to Draw Colored Lines on Transparent Images with OpenCV in Python
by vigneshchennai74 Updated: Feb 17, 2023
This code demonstrates how to use the OpenCV library in Python to modify a transparent image. It's useful for various applications that require the manipulation of transparent images, such as image editing software or computer vision projects.
This code imports the cv2 (OpenCV) module, a Python wrapper for the OpenCV library, and the NumPy module, which supports multi-dimensional arrays and matrices. This code prepares the image file for further processing by loading it into a numpy array and obtaining its dimensions. The loaded image can then be modified or processed in various ways, such as resizing, cropping, or applying image filters.
This code draws a straight line on the image result using the line() function from the cv2 module. These modules can perform various image processing tasks, such as loading, manipulating, and saving images and applying various image processing operations like filtering, thresholding, and segmentation. This code modifies the image result by adding a blue line to it. The resulting array can then be saved as a new image file or used for further image processing.
Here is an example of how to draw a line in a transparent Image
Preview of the output that you will get on running this code from your IDE
In this solution we use the Imread function of the OpenCV.
import cv2 import numpy as np # load transparent image img = cv2.imread('blue_circle.png', cv2.IMREAD_UNCHANGED) hh, ww = img.shape[:2] # draw colored line as opaque result = img.copy() cv2.line(result, (20, 30), (100, 80), (255, 255, 0, 255), 10) # save result cv2.imwrite('blue_circle_line.png', result) # display result, though it won't show transparency cv2.imshow("IMAGE", img) cv2.imshow("RESULT", result) cv2.waitKey(0) cv2.destroyAllWindows()
- Copy the code using the "Copy" button above, and paste it in a Python file in your IDE.
- Import open Cv library and Numpy library.
- Modify the name, location of the image in the code.
- Run the file to draw a line.
I hope you found this useful. I have added the link to dependent libraries, version information in the following sections.
i found this code snippet by searching for "Drawing a line on PNG image OpenCV2 Python' in kandi. You can try any such use case!
I tested this solution in the following versions. Be mindful of changes when working with other versions
- The solution is created and executed in python version 3.7.15 .
- The solution is tested on OpenCV 4.6.0
- The solution is tested on numpy 1.21.6
Using this solution, we are going to draw a line in PNG image using the OpenCv library in Python with simple steps. This process also facilities an easy to use, hassle free method to create a hands-on working version of code which would help us draw a line in a image in Python
