Learn Free how to create a virtual pen and eraser with python and OpenCV with source code and complete guide. This entire application is built fundamentally on contour detection. It can be thought of as something like closed color curves on compromises that have the same color or intensity, it’s like a blob. In this project we use color masking to get the binary mask of our target color pen, then we use the counter detection to find the location of this pen and the contour to find it.

HDR images encompass the information of multiple pictures with different exposures. In a scene which the source of light is uneven, a single shot may overexpose certain areas of the image and details will be lost due to elevated brightness. Conversely, this picture may also present underexposed areas which will also lead to information loss.
To create an HDR image you will need:

By default, there is no need to enable OpenCV with CUDA for GPU processing, but during production, when you have heavy OpenCV manipulations to do on image/video files, we can make use of the OpenCV CUDA library to make those operations to run on GPU rather than CPU and it saves a lot of time.
It was not easy as it is said to connect the OpenCV library to enable it with CUDA, I had to go through a painful process for a week to establish the connection properly, also its both time & money consuming process. So this time I want to record the overall process for my future, as well as for others.
For the demonstration, I am renting an EC2 instance with a p3.8xlarge instance in the AWS, which has 4 Nvidia GPUs.
Source — AWS EC2 Pricing
So if you need any help in starting an EC2 instance for the first time, you can refer to my previous post on Step by Step Creation of an EC2 Instance in AWS and Access it via Putty & WinSCP and during the process select the GPU instance you require.
Now after ssh-ing into the instance, before we get into the process we need to install a lot of packages to make the environment ready.
_Note: I have consolidated all the commands I ran from start to end and added them at the bottom. If you are more curious find them here in this __link _and follow along.
Run the below commands one after another on your instance and also I have attested the screenshots to compare the outputs against mine.

OpenCV is the open-source library for computer vision and image processing tasks in machine learning. OpenCV provides a huge suite of algorithms and aims at real-time computer vision. Keras, on the other hand, is a deep learning framework to enable fast experimentation with deep learning. In this Keras Tutorial, we will learn about Keras Vs OpenCV.
First, we will see both the technologies, their application, and then the differences between keras and OpenCv.
Computer Vision is defined for understanding meaningful descriptions of physical objects from the image.
OpenCV was built to provide an infrastructure for computer vision. This library has a huge range of optimized machine learning and computer vision algorithms. These algorithms include object identification, detecting and recognizing faces, object movement tracking, etc. OpenCV provides support for C++, Python, Java and MATLAB programming languages and works on Windows, Linux, Android and Mac Operating Systems.
The common features in OpenCV are read and write images, save and capture images/videos, filter or transform the image, detecting faces,eyes,cars in images or videos, perform feature detection, background subtraction, and tracking objects.

OpenCV or Open Source Computer Vision Library is a powerful machine learning, and AI-based library used to develop and solve computer vision problems. Computer vision includes training a computer to understand and comprehend the visual world, identify elements, and respond to them using deep learning models. Businesses today all over the world leverage it in image manipulation, processing, face detection, voice recognition, motion tracking, and object detection.
Companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Intel already deploy OpenCV to develop computer vision applications. Mark Zuckerberg, in a 2015 interview had remarked, “If we are able to build computers that could understand what’s in an image and tell a blind person who otherwise couldn’t see that image, that would be pretty amazing as well.”
Today, the OpenCV technology has proved to be a breakthrough for blind or visually impaired individuals. It allows them to get acquainted with an unfamiliar environment and recognise objects and people nearby to overcome this vision impairment. Computer vision is also the technology behind self-driving cars and intelligent motion sensor devices.
If you are eyeing a career in computer vision, here are ten interesting open cv projects to help you gain real-world experience. So, let’s get started!

Most of you must have heard about the Harry Potter series. In that series, Harry potter used an invisibility cloak, that makes him invisible…! Are you wondering how they made invisible cloaks……? That’s not as tough as rocket science to build this invisibility cloak. By using simple techniques in the OpenCV we can implement this invisible cloak. This concept is similar to the green mat used in movie shootings. After shooting, they add graphics in the place of a green mat to give the output.
In this implementation, we will learn how to create our own ‘Invisibility Cloak’ using simple computer vision techniques in OpenCV. Here we are using OpenCV because it provides the best-inbuilt libraries to implement this in a few steps.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to translate and shift images using OpenCV.
Translation is the shifting of an image along the x- and _y-_axis. To translate an image using OpenCV, we must:
This sounds like a complicated process, but as you will see, it can all be done in only two lines of code!
To learn how to translate images with OpenCV, just keep reading.

We will discuss how we can apply Face Detection using OpenCV. We go straightforward with a practical reproducible example.
The logic it the following: We get the image from the URL (or from the hard disk). We convert it to an
numpy array and then to a grayscale. Then by applying the proper CascadeClassifier we get the bounding boxes of the faces. Finally, using PIllow (or even OpenCV) we can draw the boxes on the initial image.
import cv2 as cv import numpy as np import PIL from PIL import Image import requests from io import BytesIO from PIL import ImageDraw ## I have commented out the cat and eye cascade. Notice that the xml files are in the opencv folder that you have downloaded and installed ## so it is good a idea to write the whole path face_cascade = cv.CascadeClassifier('C:\\opencv\\build\\etc\\haarcascades\\haarcascade_frontalface_default.xml') #cat_cascade = cv.CascadeClassifier('C:\\opencv\\build\\etc\\haarcascades\\haarcascade_frontalcatface.xml') #eye_cascade = cv.CascadeClassifier('C:\\opencv\\build\\etc\\haarcascades\\haarcascade_eye.xml') URL = "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1525267219888-bb077b8792cc?ixlib=rb-1.2.1&ixid=eyJhcHBfaWQiOjEyMDd9&auto=format&fit=crop&w=1050&q=80" response = requests.get(URL) img = Image.open(BytesIO(response.content)) img_initial = img.copy() ## convert it to np array img = np.asarray(img) gray = cv.cvtColor(img, cv.COLOR_BGR2GRAY) faces = face_cascade.detectMultiScale(gray) ## And lets just print those faces out to the screen #print(faces) drawing=ImageDraw.Draw(img_initial) ## For each item in faces, lets surround it with a red box for x,y,w,h in faces: ## That might be new syntax for you! Recall that faces is a list of rectangles in (x,y,w,h) ## format, that is, a list of lists. Instead of having to do an iteration and then manually ## pull out each item, we can use tuple unpacking to pull out individual items in the sublist ## directly to variables. A really nice python feature # ## Now we just need to draw our box drawing.rectangle((x,y,x+w,y+h), outline="red") display(img_initial)

I have spent countless hours trying to fix problems with OpenCV, especially when running cv2.imshow like this:
imshow has just the bad reputation of not working a lot of times.
Since I couldn’t find any solution online, I decided I will write this post, either for the George of the future or for anyone else that might face the same problem!
In my case I had it working for a long time, and all of the sudden after switching python versions and several virtual environments later it just stopped working despite I was using the same computer.
I’m aware of 2 possible problems that can happen to you:
Problem 1: When calling imshow the image opens in a window, but when closing it crashes.
Problem 2: When calling imshow the everything just freezes and no window even shows up.

OpenCV is a cross-platform library using which we can develop real-time computer vision applications . It mainly focuses on image processing, video capture, and analysis, including face detection and object detection.
** Let’s Start With Basic Implementation**

What is face recognition? Or what is recognition? When you look at an apple fruit, your mind immediately tells you that this is an apple fruit. This process, your mind telling you that this is an apple fruit is recognition in simple words. So what is face recognition then? I am sure you have guessed it right. When you look at your friend walking down the street or a picture of him, you recognize that he is your friend Paulo. Interestingly when you look at your friend or a picture of him you look at his face first before looking at anything else. Ever wondered why you do that? This is so that you can recognize him by looking at his face. Well, this is you doing face recognition.
But the real question is how does face recognition works? It is quite simple and intuitive. Take a real-life example, when you meet someone first time in your life you don’t recognize him, right? While he talks or shakes hands with you, you look at his face, eyes, nose, mouth, color, and overall look. This is your mind learning or training for the face recognition of that person by gathering face data. Then he tells you that his name is Paulo. At this point, your mind knows that the face data it just learned belongs to Paulo. Now your mind is trained and ready to do face recognition on Paulo’s face. Next time when you will see Paulo or his face in a picture you will immediately recognize him. This is how to face recognition work. The more you will meet Paulo, the more data your mind will collect about Paulo and especially his face, and the better you will become at recognizing him.
Now the next question is how to code face recognition with OpenCV, after all this is the only reason why you are reading this article, right? OK then. You might say that our mind can do these things easily but to actually code them into a computer is difficult? Don’t worry, it is not. Thanks to OpenCV, coding face recognition is as easier as it feels. The coding steps for face recognition are the same as we discussed in the real-life example above.
OpenCV comes equipped with a built-in face recognizer, all you have to do is feed it the face data. It’s that simple and this how it will look once we are done coding it.
