The Wand is an Imagick library for python. It supports the functionalities of Imagick API in Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3+, and PyPy.This library not only helps in processing the images but also provides valuable functionalities for Machine Learning codes using NumPy.

Installation:
By Pip:

$ pip install Wand

As the wand is an Imagick API, so we require Imagick dependencies.

Imagick’s Installation:

  • For Ubuntu/Debian:
    $ sudo apt-get install libmagickwand-dev
  • For Mac (By Brew Installer)



    $ brew install imagemagick

    Installation of MacPorts

    $ sudo port install imagemagick

    Note: If Python is not installed using MacPorts, we need to export MAGICK_HOME.

    $ export MAGICK_HOME=/opt/local
    Example 1: Reading an Image:
    Input Image: geeksforgeeks.png
    geeksforgeeks




    # Import library from the wand
    from wand.image import Image
      
    # Import the image
    with Image(filename ='geeksforgeeks.png') as pic:
      
        # Read the image to fetch actual dimensions
        print('Width of the image:', pic.width)
        print('Height of the image:', pic.height)

    Output:

    ('Width of the image:', 667L)
    ('Height of the image:', 184L)
    

    Example 2: Blur an Image:




    # Import library from the wand 
    from wand.image import Image
      
    # Import the image
    with Image(filename ="geeksforgeeks.png") as pic:
      
        # Invoke blur function with radius 0 and sigma 3
        pic.blur(radius = 0, sigma = 3)
      
        # save the processed iamge
        pic.save(filename ="blur1.png")

    Output:
    blur-geeksforgeeks-pyhton

    Example 3: Transfor the image




    # Import library from the wand
    from wand.image import Image
      
    # Import the image
    with Image(filename ='geeksforgeeks.png') as image:
        # Clone the image in order to process
        with image.clone() as flip:
      
            # Invoke flip function
            flip.flip()
      
            # Save the image
            flip.save(filename ='flip-geeksforgeeks.jpg')

    Output:
    flip-geeksforgeeks

    Example 4: Drawing:




    # Import libraries from the wand  
    from wand.image import Image
    from wand.drawing import Drawing
    from wand.color import Color
      
    with Drawing() as draw:
        # Set Stroke color the circle to black
        draw.stroke_color = Color('black')
      
        # Set Width of the circlw to 2 
        draw.stroke_width = 2
      
        # Set the fill color to 'White (# FFFFFF)'
        draw.fill_color = Color('white')
      
        # Invoke Circle function with center 
        # at 200, 200 and radius 100
        draw.circle((200, 200), # Center point
                    (100, 100)) # Perimeter point
        with Image(width = 400, height = 400
                  background = Color('lightgreen')) as pic:
            draw(pic)
            pic.save(filename ='circle1.jpg')

    Output:
    circle
