as the title states, when I do

im = cv2.imread("path\to\image.jpg")

and I've made sure the image is there, I get None in im I've imported cv2, and can't think of why this is happening. (Python 2.7, opencv 3.0.0). anyone have any idea? Thanks!

Try replacing \ with / in your path to image. Also, try copying the image in your program folder and just give

im = cv2.imread("image.jpg")

cv2.imshow("", im)

I had to put the image in the program folder to make it work... lame.
