# Wand affine distort() function in Python

• Last Updated : 16 Oct, 2021

Affine distortion method performs shear operation to the image. Arguments are similar to perspective distortion method, but only need a pair of 3 points and 12 Real numbers in the manner shown below:

```src1x, src1y, dst1x, dst1y,
src2x, src2y, dst2x, dst2y,
src3x, src3y, dst3x, dst3y```

Syntax: wand.image.distort(‘affine’, arguments)

Input Image:

Example #1:

## Python3

 `# Import Color from wand.color module``from` `wand.color ``import` `Color``# Import Image from wand.image module``from` `wand.image ``import` `Image`  `with Image(filename ``=``'gog.png'``) as img:``    ``img.resize(``140``, ``92``)``    ``img.background_color ``=` `Color(``'skyblue'``)``    ``img.virtual_pixel ``=` `'background'``    ``args ``=` `(``        ``10``, ``10``, ``15``, ``15``,  ``# Point 1: (10, 10) => (15,  15)``        ``139``, ``0``, ``100``, ``20``, ``# Point 2: (139, 0) => (100, 20)``        ``0``, ``92``, ``50``, ``80`    `# Point 3: (0,  92) => (50,  80)``    ``)``    ``# affline distortion using distort function``    ``img.distort(``'affine'``, args)``    ``img.save(filename ``=``"afflinegfg.png"``)`

Output:
