there may be the images of many shapes/size but i want to draw circle/eclipse every time in the same way.

Below is the code i tried for it

        Mat img = imread ("E:\\test.jpg");
        int center_img = (img.rows*img.cols)/2;
        double radius_img = img.rows/2+img.cols/2;
        circle(img,Point(img.rows/2,img.cols/2), img.rows/2,1, 8,0);
        imshow ("img" , img);

Its nothing but you have to draw ellipse() but need to adjust the parameters, like

center=your image centre
axes = Size(img.cols/2,img.rows/2) // width/2 X height/2

Now draw ellipse using above

ellipse(img,Point(img.cols/2,img.rows/2), Size(img.cols/2,img.rows/2),0,0,360, Scalar(0,0,255), 2, 8,0);

It is half of size of ellipse axis, go to docs it's well explained there with picture.

It is half of the size of ellipse axes, that is the horizontal and vertical lines passing through the centre. If you want to visualize it, just change size to Size(img. cols/4,img.rows/2) and see the major axis of ellipse become(width) reduced.

what if i want to delete the area in the ellipse and make the ellipse covered area transparent
