Python Image Processing – Make Instagram-Style Filters

Learn both the theory and practice behind image processing with OpenCV

In this course we’ll be building a photo filter editor which allows you to create filters such as those used in Instagram and Snapchat. This app allows you to load a photo, edit it’s contrast, brightness and gray-scale. You can also create and apply custom filters using this tool.

What you’ll learn

  • Image processing techniques using OpenCV.
  • Create image filters like those in Instagram.
  • Create an image editor app using Python and OpenCV.
  • Math and theory: matrices, matrix operations, kernels, convolutions, images.

Course Content

  • Introduction.
  • Source code files.
  • Course Lessons.
  • Application.
  • Conclusion.

Python Image Processing - Make Instagram-Style Filters

Requirements

  • Basic to intermediate Python skills.
Description

In this course we’ll be building a photo filter editor which allows
you to create filters such as those used in Instagram and Snapchat. This
app allows you to load a photo, edit it’s contrast, brightness and
gray-scale. You can also create and apply custom filters using this
tool.

Theory
sections are included, where concepts such as matrices, color models,
brightness, contrast and convolution are explained in detail from a
mathematical perspective. Practical sections include the installation of
Virtual Box, matrix operations using Numpy, OpenCV and the libraries we’ll be using. Also, the photo editor is built from scratch using OpenCV UI.

Learning goals:

  • Matrices
  • Color Models
  • Brightness and Contrast
  • Convolution
  • OpenCV UI
Who this course is for:
  • Python developers who want to learn image processing and manipulation
