I have a small Image:

Mat myImage;

This image is of Size(100,100). Now I would like to enlarge the dimension of this image to Size(1000,1000) (filling the rest of the space with black)

I could do in this way (but I think there could be a faster solution)

 Mat largerImage(Size(1000,1000),myImage.type());
 largerImage = Scalar(0);

How can I directly "expand" myImage ?

Mat largerImage(Size(1000,1000),myImage.type()); won't fill with zeros(maybe it does for you in DEBUG, but don't rely on that), use:

Mat largerImage = Mat::zeros(Size(1000,1000),myImage.type()); instead

Yea I forgot to write in the question: largerImage = Scalar(0);

You can use the copyMakeBorder function. Border size can be set independently in each direction. Border type can be BORDER_CONSTANT with a black border value scalar.
