tf.image.central_crop(
image,
central_fraction
)


See the guide: Images > Cropping

Crop the central region of the image.

Remove the outer parts of an image but retain the central region of the image along each dimension. If we specify central_fraction = 0.5, this function returns the region marked with "X" in the below diagram.

#### Args:

• image: 3-D float Tensor of shape [height, width, depth]
• central_fraction: float (0, 1], fraction of size to crop

#### Raises:

• ValueError: if central_crop_fraction is not within (0, 1].
