Python utilities for common computer vision tasks. The goal of this package is to provide a lightweight package helping you with standard/recurring image manipulation tasks.


  • Pseudocoloring: Standard monochrome image and 16-bit depth image.
    from vito import imutils
    from vito import imvis
    # Load a single-channel image (data.dtype will be numpy.uint8)
    peaks = imutils.imread('peaks.png', mode='L')
    # Colorize it
    colorized = imvis.pseudocolor(peaks, limits=None, color_map=colormaps.colormap_viridis_rgb)
    # Load 16-bit depth stored as PNG (data.dtype will be numpy.int32)
    depth = imutils.imread('depth.png')
    # Colorize it
    colorized = imvis.pseudocolor(depth, limits=None, color_map=colormaps.colormap_turbo_rgb)
    Example visualizations: colorization via the turbo rainbow colormap (left); same data reduced to 11 bins colorized using viridis (right). Input data is obtained from two translated and scaled Gaussian distributions. Pseudocoloring Example
  • Optical flow:
    from vito import flowutils
    from vito import imvis
    # Load optical flow file
    flow = flowutils.floread('color_wheel.flo')
    # Colorize it
    colorized = flowutils.colorize_flow(flow)
    Examplary visualization: Optical flow (standard color wheel visualization) and corresponding RGB frame for one frame of the MPI Sintel Flow dataset. Optical Flow Example
  • Pixelation:
    from vito import anonymization
    from vito import imutils
    from vito import imvis
    img = imutils.imread('faces.jpg')
    face_rects = [(l0, t0, w0, h0), (l1, t1, w1, h1), ... ]
    TODO apply_on_bboxes + pixelate/blur
  • For more examples (or if you prefer having a simple GUI to change visualization/analyse your data), see also the iminspect package (which uses vito under the hood).


  • numpy
  • Pillow


  • 1.1.1
    • Maximum alpha channel value derived from data type.
  • 1.1.0
    • Added padding functionality.
  • 1.0.4
    • Improved test coverage.
    • Fixed potential future bugs - explicit handling of wrong/unexpected user inputs.
  • 1.0.3
    • Minor bug fix: handle invalid user inputs in imvis.
  • 1.0.2
    • Additional tests and minor improvements (potential bug fixes, especially for edge case inputs).
    • Ensure default image I/O parametrization always returns/saves/loads color images as RGB (even if OpenCV is available/used on your system).
  • 1.0.1
    • Fix colorizing boolean masks (where mask[:] = True or mask[:] = False).
  • 1.0.0
    • Rename flow package to flowutils.
  • 0.3.2
    • Rename colorization for optical flow.
  • 0.3.1
    • Fix colormaps.by_name() for grayscale.
  • 0.3.0
    • apply_on_bboxes() now supports optional kwargs to be passed on to the user-defined function handle.
    • Changed imread()'s default mode parameter to optional kwargs which are passed on to Pillow.
    • Raising error for non-existing files in imread()
    • Added colormaps.by_name() functionality.
    • Fixed bounding box clipping off-by-one issue.
    • Added imutils tests ensuring proper data types.
  • 0.2.0
    • Optical flow (Middlebury .flo format) I/O and visualization.
    • Support saving images.
    • Colorization to visualize tracking results.
  • 0.1.1
    • Changed supported python versions for legacy tests.
  • 0.1.0
    • First actually useful release.
    • Contains most of the functionality of pvt (a library I developed throughout my studies).
      • cam_projections - projective geometry, lens distortion/rectification (Plumb Bob model), etc.
      • colormaps - colormap definitions for visualization (jet, parula, magma, viridis, etc.)
      • imutils - image loading, conversion, RoI handling (e.g. apply functions on several patches of an image).
      • imvis - visualization helpers, e.g. pseudocoloring or overlaying images.
      • pyutils - common python functions (timing code, string manipulation, list sorting/search, etc.)
  • 0.0.1
    • Initial public release.
    • Contains common python/language and camera projection utils.


  • anonymization utils
  • augmentation
