Learn more about working with image channels and color spaces, and about efficient traversing through matrices.
- [Instructor] Let's dive further into working…with image channels and manipulating groups of pixels.…I'll start off by importing…Numpy as NP…followed by import CV2.…Then we'll load in our butterfly image again…using color equals CV2.imread and then…in quotations, butterfly.jpg and again…we'll specify one for a full color load.…Next, let's see about converting the number…of channels from three down to one.…
Or in other words converting this…to a grayscale image.…You can type gray equals CV2.cvt color…where the C is capitalized in color.…And then we'll pass in our color variable…followed by CV2 dot and in all caps Color underscore…RGB the number two and then G-R-A-Y.…We can then write this image back out to disc…using CV2.imwrite and then indicate…the name you want to save it out to such as Gray.jpg…and then pass in our variable gray.…
When you run the script, instead of showing it…in the user interface it's going to simply write…this file out to the disc.…Next let's take a look at what we can do…to add an additional channel to an image already loaded.…
