Python: OpenCV: resize image by width

6 07 2014

resize big image by width for example there are 5400×2700 pixels and want to display by 1000 pixel width. try this
import cv2
filename = 'bigimage.jpg'
W = 1000.
oriimg = cv2.imread(filename,cv2.CV_LOAD_IMAGE_COLOR)
height, width, depth = oriimg.shape
imgScale = W/width
newX,newY = oriimg.shape[1]*imgScale, oriimg.shape[0]*imgScale
newimg = cv2.resize(oriimg,(int(newX),int(newY)))
cv2.imshow("Show by CV2",newimg)

if image has width less than 1000 it will be enlarge image.
