Wand ellipse() function in Python

  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

elippse() function is used to draw an ellipse on the image. Just similar to drawing circle the ellipse() function requires two pairs of point that is, origin and a pair of (x, y) radius of the ellipse. To draw a partial ellipse, provide a pair of starting & ending degrees as the third parameter.

Syntax :

wand.drawing.ellipse(origin, radius, rotation)

Parameters :

ParameterInput TypeDescription
origin(collections.abc.Sequence) – (numbers.Real, numbers.Real)pair which represents origin x and y of ellipse.
radius(collections.abc.Sequence) – (numbers.Real, numbers.Real)pair which represents radius x and radius y of ellipse
rotation(collections.abc.Sequence) – (numbers.Real, numbers.Real)pair which represents start and end of ellipse. Default (0, 360)

Example #1:




# Import required objects from wand modules
from wand.image import Image
from wand.drawing import Drawing
from wand.color import Color
  
# generate object for wand.drawing
with Drawing() as draw:
    # set stroke color
    draw.stroke_color = Color('black')
  
    # set width for stroke
    draw.stroke_width = 1
  
    # fill white color in arc
    draw.fill_color = Color('white')
    origin = (100, 100)
    perimeter = (50, 100)
  
    # draw circle using circle() function
    draw.ellipse(origin, perimeter) 
    with Image(width = 200,
               height = 200,
               background = Color('green')) as img:
        # draw shape on image using draw() function
        draw.draw(img)
        img.save(filename ='ellipse.png')

Output :



Example #2: Drawing partial ellipse using rotation argument




# Import required objects from wand modules
from wand.image import Image
from wand.drawing import Drawing
from wand.color import Color
  
# generate object for wand.drawing
with Drawing() as draw:
    # set stroke color
    draw.stroke_color = Color('black')
  
    # set width for stroke
    draw.stroke_width = 1
  
    # fill white color in arc
    draw.fill_color = Color('white')
    origin = (100, 100)
    perimeter = (100, 50)
    rotation = (0, 270)
  
    # draw circle using circle() function
    draw.ellipse(origin, perimeter, rotation) 
    with Image(width = 200,
               height = 200,
               background = Color('green')) as img:
        # draw shape on image using draw() function
        draw.draw(img)
        img.save(filename ='ellipsepartial.png')
