TensorFlow 2.0 version

Loads an image into PIL format.

Aliases:

  • tf.compat.v1.keras.preprocessing.image.load_img
  • tf.compat.v2.keras.preprocessing.image.load_img
tf.keras.preprocessing.image.load_img(
    path,
    grayscale=False,
    color_mode='rgb',
    target_size=None,
    interpolation='nearest'
)

Arguments

path: Path to image file.
grayscale: DEPRECATED use `color_mode="grayscale"`.
color_mode: One of "grayscale", "rgb", "rgba". Default: "rgb".
    The desired image format.
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.
