tf.keras.preprocessing.image.load_img(
    path,
    grayscale=False,
    target_size=None,
    interpolation='nearest'
)

Defined in tensorflow/python/keras/_impl/keras/preprocessing/image.py.

Loads an image into PIL format.

Arguments:

  • path: Path to image file
  • grayscale: Boolean, whether to load the image as grayscale.
  • target_size: Either None (default to original size) or tuple of ints (img_height, img_width).
  • interpolation: Interpolation method used to resample the image if the target size is different from that of the loaded image. Supported methods are "nearest", "bilinear", and "bicubic". If PIL version 1.1.3 or newer is installed, "lanczos" is also supported. If PIL version 3.4.0 or newer is installed, "box" and "hamming" are also supported. By default, "nearest" is used.

Returns:

A PIL Image instance.

Raises:

  • ImportError: if PIL is not available.
  • ValueError: if interpolation method is not supported.
