tf.random_crop(value, size, seed=None, name=None)

See the guide: Constants, Sequences, and Random Values > Random Tensors

Randomly crops a tensor to a given size.

Slices a shape size portion out of value at a uniformly chosen offset. Requires value.shape >= size.

If a dimension should not be cropped, pass the full size of that dimension. For example, RGB images can be cropped with size = [crop_height, crop_width, 3].


  • value: Input tensor to crop.
  • size: 1-D tensor with size the rank of value.
  • seed: Python integer. Used to create a random seed. See tf.set_random_seed for behavior.
  • name: A name for this operation (optional).


A cropped tensor of the same rank as value and shape size.
