I am trying a simple program to read an image and display it. However, imread is not reading the image. I checked on the internet but many told that its because of mixing debug library and release library. How do I know which library i am using? Is it someother issue? please help.

src = imread("colorchart.bmp", CV_LOAD_IMAGE_COLOR); if(! ) // Check for invalid input { cout << "Could not open or find the image" << std::endl ; return -1; } imshow( source_window, src );

  • make sure the path is correct, try an absolute one : imread("d:/my/images/colorchart.bmp")
  • make sure, you link debug libs with a debug build (they all should end with 'd'), and release ones for a release build (without d for all of them)
