The spread() function is an inbuilt function in the Python Wand ImageMagick library which is used to replace each pixel with the statistic results from neighboring pixel values. The width & height defines the size, or aperture, of the neighboring pixels.


spread(radius, method)

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

  • radius: This parameter stores the radius of the pixel can be displaced from source.
  • method: This parameter stores the available color methods. Some of the available methods are ‘undefined’, ‘average’, ‘average9’, ‘average16’, ‘background’, ‘bilinear’, ‘blend’, ‘catrom’, ‘integer’, ‘mesh’, ‘nearest’, ‘spline’.

Return Value: This function returns the Wand ImageMagick object.

Example 1: 


# Import library from Image
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 spread:
        # Invoke spread function with radius 15 and method as 'nearest'
        spread.spread(15, 'nearest')
        # Save the image ='spread1.jpg')


Example 2: 


# 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 circle to 2
    draw.stroke_width = 1
    # Set the fill color to 'White (# FFFFFF)'
    draw.fill_color = Color('white')
    # Invoke Circle function with center at 50, 50 and radius 25, 200), # Center point
                (100, 100)) # Perimeter point
    # Set the font style
    draw.font = '../Helvetica.ttf'
    # Set the font size
    draw.font_size = 30
    with Image(width = 400, height = 400, background = Color('# 45ff33')) as pic:
        # Set the text and its location
        draw.text(int(pic.width / 3), int(pic.height / 2), 'GeeksForGeeks !')
        # Draw the picture
        # Invoke spread function with radius 10 and method as 'blend'
        pic.spread(10, 'blend')
        # Save the image ='spread2.jpg')
