Matplotlib figure to image as a numpy array

MatplotlibServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

We can use the following steps to convert a figure into a numpy array −

  • Read a figure from a directory; convert it into numpy array.

  • Use imshow() method to display the image.

  • Use show() method to display it.

Example

from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.00, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True
im = plt.imread("bird.jpg")
print("Numpy array of the image is: ", im)
im = plt.imshow(im)
plt.show()

Output

When we execute the code, it will show "bird.jpg" in a plot and show its numpy array on the console.

Numpy array of the image is: [[[162 162 170]
[162 162 170]
[160 163 170]
