You can draw a circle in OpenCV Python by following the given steps. I highly recommend you get the “Computer Vision: Models, Learning, and Inference Book” to learn Computer Vision.
Import the OpenCV library. If OpenCV is not installed in your system then first install it using This Method.
import cv2 #cv2 is used for OpenCV library
Now read the image from the location. In my case “C:\\AiHints” is the location and “AI.jpg” is the name of the image. Change it according to your image location and name.
image = cv2.imread("C:\\AiHints\\AI.jpg") #imread is use to read an image from a location
Now I will draw a circle on the image using the following code. In the code, (70,70) is the center point, and 60 is the diameter of the circle. After that, I will specify a color for the circle (0,255,0) that is green color. In the end, 6 is the thickness of the circumference. You can change any value according to your requirement.
image2 = cv2.circle(image,(70,70), 60, (0,255,0),6)
To display the image in a specified window use ”imshow” function.
cv2.imshow("Green Circle on Image",image2)
“waitKey(0)” will display a window until any key is pressed. “destroyAllWindows()” will destroy all the windows that we created.
