Creating GIFs with OpenCV

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create animated GIFs using OpenCV, Python, and ImageMagick. You’ll then combine all of these techniques to build a meme generator with OpenCV! We all need a good laugh every now and then. And perhaps the best way to find LOLs is from memes. Some of my favorite […]

OpenCV Face Recognition

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use OpenCV to perform face recognition. To build our face recognition system, we’ll first perform face detection, extract face embeddings from each face using deep learning, train a face recognition model on the embeddings, and then finally recognize faces in both images and video streams with OpenCV. […]

Face detection with OpenCV and deep learning

Today I’m going to share a little known secret with you regarding the OpenCV library: You can perform fast, accurate face detection with OpenCV using a pre-trained deep learning face detector model shipped with the library. You may already know that OpenCV ships out-of-the-box with pre-trained Haar cascades that can be used for face detection… […]
