Python OpenCV – cv2.polylines() method
OpenCV is the huge open-source library for computer vision, machine learning, and image processing and it now plays a major role in real-time operations which are very important in today’s systems. By using OpenCV one can process images and videos to identify objects, faces, or even the handwriting of a human. When it is combined with various libraries such as Numpy, Python is capable of processing the OpenCV array structure for analysis.

cv2.polylines() method is used to draw a polygon on any image.
Syntax: cv2.polylines(image, [pts], isClosed, color, thickness)
Parameters: image: It is the image on which circle is to be drawn.
pts: Array of polygonal curves.
npts: Array of polygon vertex counters.
ncontours: Number of curves.
isClosed: Flag indicating whether the drawn polylines are closed or not. If they are closed, the function draws a line from the last vertex of each curve to its first vertex.
color: It is the color of polyline to be drawn. For BGR, we pass a tuple.
thickness: It is thickness of the polyline edges.
Return Value: It returns an image.
Image used for all the below examples:
