Mahotas – Eroding Image

In this article we will see how we can erode the image in mahotas. Erosion (usually represented by ?) is one of two fundamental operations (the other being dilation) in morphological image processing from which all other morphological operations are based. It was originally defined for binary images, later being extended to grayscale images, and subsequently to complete lattices.

In this tutorial we will use “luispedro” image, below is the command to load it.

mahotas.demos.load('luispedro')

Below is the luispedro image

In order to do this we will use mahotas.morph.erodemethod

Syntax : mahotas.morph.erode(image)



Argument :It takes image object as argument

Return : It returns image object

Note : Input image should be filtered or should be loaded as grey

In order to filter the image we will take the image object which is numpy.ndarray and filter it with the help of indexing, below is the command to do this

image = image[:, :, 0]

Below is the implementation

filter_none

import numpy as np
  
# loading iamge
luispedro = mahotas.demos.load('luispedro')
  
# filtering image
luispedro = luispedro.max(2)
  
# otsu method
T_otsu = mahotas.otsu(luispedro)
   
  
# image values should be greater than otsu value
img = luispedro > T_otsu
  
print("Image threshold using Otsu Mehtod")
  
# showing image
imshow(img)
show()
  
# eroding image
new_img = mahotas.morph.erode(img)
  
# showing eroded image
print("Eroded Image")
imshow(new_img)
show()

Output :

Image threshold using Otsu Mehtod
