Read Image Files¶
Read and plot image files (JPEG, TIFF, PNG, etc).
from pyvista import examples
PyVista fully supports reading images into their own spatially referenced data objects (this example) as well as supports texture mapping of images onto datasets (see Applying Textures).
Download a JPEG image of a puppy and load it to
This could similarly be implemented with any image file by using the
pyvista.read() function and passing the path to the image file.
image = examples.download_puppy() # or... # image = pv.read('my_image.jpg')
When plotting images stored in
pyvista.UniformGrid objects, it is
important to specify using the rgb option when plotting to ensure that the
image’s true colors are used and not mapped.
# True image colors image.plot(rgb=True, cpos="xy")
# Mapped image colors image.plot(cpos="xy")
