In this article we will see can load image in mahotas. Mahotas is a computer vision and image processing and manipulation library for Python. A library is a collection of functions and methods that allows you to perform many actions without having to write hundreds of lines of code. Mahotas includes many algorithms that operates with arrays, mahotas currently has over 100 functions for image processing and computer vision and is constantly growing.

# loading iamge
img = mahotas.imread('wally.png')
  
# showing the image
imshow(img)
show()
