Below is the luispedro image  

In order to do this we will use mahotas.demos.load method  

Syntax : mahotas.demos.load(‘luispedro’, as_grey=True)
Argument : It takes image name as argument
Return : It returns numpy.ndarray i.e image object 
 

Example 1:  

Python3




# importing required libraries
import mahotas
import mahotas.demos
import numpy as np
from pylab import imshow, gray, show
from os import path
 
# loading the image
photo = mahotas.demos.load('luispedro')
 
# showing original image
print("Original Image")
imshow(photo)
show()
 
# loading image as grey
photo = mahotas.demos.load('luispedro', as_grey = True)
 
# showing image
print("Image loaded as grey")

from os import path
 
# loading the image
photo = mahotas.demos.load('luispedro')
 
# showing original image
print("Original Image")
imshow(photo)
show()
 
# loading image as grey
photo = mahotas.demos.load('luispedro', as_grey = True)
 
# converting image type to unit8
# because as_grey returns floating values
photo = photo.astype(np.uint8)
 
# calling gray method
gray()
 
# showing image
print("Image loaded as grey")
imshow(photo)
