Where do I get the sample images simple.jpg, chessboard.jpg, home.jpg, fly.png and others from the Python feature detection and description tutorial ( )?

they seem to be missing from the source folder. I guess you can open a bug report / request about adding the image files. I managed though to find the home.jpg file elsewhere.

They are indeed missing ... if someone is able to retrieve them somewhere, I am willing to add them back!

I managed to retrieve the home.jpg, simple.jpg in their original form and the fly.png in a processed form. I had to use the inpaint() functionality in order to achieve as much as possible something close to the original version of the image, since I could not find it somewhere. For the chessboard.jpg I cannot get something related to the original image but I guess any sample related to a chessboard pattern would work similarly with the image the tutorial's author is using.


we found the fly.jpg many thanks to @LBerger ;-)

And the images are here:

by the way the original name of simple is blox which is more meaningful ( Therefore I would suggest to change the name to blox, also in the example code

@Jochen0x90h will do so!

BTW which sample code uses simple.jpg? I cannot see it.

Many tutorials have missing images. I've asked Abid Rahman K (one of the authors of the tutorials) for help to find the missing files, but in the meantime, I'll share what I've seen as missing, and what I've found on the web:

Basic Operations on Images is missing: opencv_logo.png

Arithmetic Operations on Images is missing: ml.png, opencv_logo.jpg (actually, it is a different file from the one currently in the source)

Geometric Transformations of Imagesis missing: drawing.png, sudokusmall.png. Found replacement/original for sudokusmall.png at

Image Thresholdingis missing: gradient.png, dave.jpg, noisy2.png. Found replacement/original for dave.jpg at (I've created a version of noisy2.png, but the results were somewhat different from the tutorial)

Smoothing Images is missing: opencv_logo.png. It seems to be a copy of doc/opencv-logo-white.png

Image Pyramids is missing: apple.jpg, orange.jpg (originals from here)

I'll try to and more details later.

@FunKing, I will take again a look at this and supply a PR with the necessary resources if we can locate them again.

A PR for all of this: Still 2 images that I did not find...
