Example text

Task Given a color image, convert it to a grayscale image. cols, CV_8UC1); // convert RGB image to GrayScale cvtColor(image, gray, CV_BGR2GRAY); // create a window to display the image namedWindow( "Color Image", CV_WINDOW_AUTOSIZE ); namedWindow("GrayScale Image", CV_WINDOW_AUTOSIZE); // display the image in the window created imshow( "Color Image", image ); imshow( "GrayScale Image", gray); // wait for a keystroke waitKey(0); return 0; } Code explanation The code is quite similar to the ones we have looked at before.

In this case, it converts a given color image to grayscale. The function takes three arguments. The first one is the matrix containing the source image (the image that we want to convert), while the second one is the matrix in which we want to store the converted image. The third argument specifies the type of conversion that we want perform and in our case, it is CV_BGR2GRAY. We can also use the above function to convert an image from a given color space model like RGB to other models such as HSV and CIELAB.

So, now let us understand how to write an OpenCV code to perform the above operation. For better understanding this process has been split into two parts. 30 Instant OpenCV Starter Part 1 – encode This is the first part of the program. Task Hide a given image in another image using image steganography. Algorithm Think of a number, for example, 126. We can say that the most important digit in this number is 1 which is in the hundredth place. It carries maximum weightage compared to the other digits 2 and 6.
