I am using OpenCV python API, the image is HWC(Height, Width, Channel) at first(by default) and I use

img = cv2.imread(image_path) image_bytes = cv2.imencode(".jpg", img)[1]

it works well, the img variable is a ndarray with [224, 224, 3] shape

Then I transpose the image to CHW(Channel, Height, Width) format, using

img = img.transpose((2, 0, 1)) image_bytes = cv2.imencode(".jpg", img)[1]

And it raised error

Traceback: File "..." image_bytes = cv2.imencode(".jpg", img)[1] cv2.error: OpenCV(4.1.0) /io/opencv/modules/imgcodecs/src/loadsave.cpp:871: error: (-215:Assertion failed) channels == 1 || channels == 3 || channels == 4 in function 'imencode'

Does image encoding support CHW? How to do it correctly?

How to do it correctly?

either keep it HWC or split it into single channels and save those seperately
