tf.io.decode_gif

TensorFlow 1 version

Defined in generated file: python/ops/gen_image_ops.py

Decode the frame(s) of a GIF-encoded image to a uint8 tensor.

Aliases:

tf.io.decode_gif(
    contents,
    name=None
)

GIF images with frame or transparency compression are not supported. On Linux and MacOS systems, convert animated GIFs from compressed to uncompressed by running:

convert $src.gif -coalesce $dst.gif

This op also supports decoding JPEGs and PNGs, though it is cleaner to use tf.image.decode_image.

Args:

  • contents: A Tensor of type string. 0-D. The GIF-encoded image.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).

Returns:

A Tensor of type uint8.
