We will introduce how to correctly install and import the
OpenCV module in Python with the help of examples.
No Module Named CV2 in Mac in Python
First, we must understand what’s
OpenCV and why it is used in Python.
OpenCV is a Python library used to perform image processing and computer vision tasks.
This library includes many features that can help us with complicated tasks such as object detection, face recognition, and tracking.
The most common mistake many programmers make is installing the wrong library of
OpenCV. It is a very common mistake because we call it differently while importing and installing, which confuses people in installing the wrong library.
We can easily install the
OpenCV module using the following
pip command, as shown below.
pip install opencv-python
Once we have installed the library, we can easily import it into our code using the following code, as shown below.
Now, if you are having any troubles, you can easily resolve them by installing the correct library and importing it correctly. Most programmers try to install
OpenCV using the following command, as shown below.
pip install cv2
Just because we import
cv2 doesn’t mean that we can install the
OpenCV library by using the same name and because of this they install the wrong library which is blog distribution utilities but not an
