  • degree: This parameter stores the degrees in angle between 0 to 360.
  • method: This parameter stores the method which controls interpolation of the effected pixels. 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 swirl:
        # Invoke swirl function with degree as 100 and method ss 'blend'
        swirl.swirl(100, 'blend')
        # Save the image ='swirl1.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 swirl function with degree as 150 and method as bilinear
        pic.swirl(150, 'bilinear')
        # Save the image ='swirl2.jpg')
