Hi everyone! I read a brilliant work by Aditya Prakash – OpenCV C++ Program to blur an image, so I decided to come up with something similar but this time in Python. So, here is a very simple program with basically the same result.
Now, this program above is using image blurring technique called Averaging.There are some other options available as well – Gaussian Blurring, Median Blurring, Bilateral Filtering. Let’s make a couple of additions in our program and compare the results.
Hope you enjoyed the post! Auf Wiedersehen!
