Hello, I know that I can access pixels using "<char>(i,j)" where i, j are columns and rows of an image. Now I have a set of pixels i.e. a set of (i,j) values of an image. I would like to extract the convex hull of the image using those (i, j) values. Could any one give me some tips how that can be done using opencv?

Thanks in advance.

opencv comes with a built-in convexhull , but that requires an outline of points like from findContours

alternatively, you want to do your own graham-scan

Thanks for the answer. How can I get the coordinate values at [i][j] pixel of an image using opencv? I would also like to display the portion of the image in the convex hull. How can that be done?
