Wand canny() function – Python

The canny() function is an inbuilt function in the Python Wand ImageMagick library which is used to detect edges by leveraging a multi-stage Canny algorithm.

Syntax:

canny(radius, sigma, lower_percent, upper_percent)

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and defined below:

  • radius: This parameter stores the radius of the gaussian filter.
  • sigma: This parameter stores the standard deviation of the gaussian filter.
  • lower_percent: This parameter which stores the normalized lower threshold.
  • upper_percent: This parameter which stores the normalized upper threshold.

Return Value: This function returns the Wand ImageMagick object.
