OpenCV, short for Open Source Computer Vision Library, is an open-source computer vision and machine learning software library. Originally developed by Intel, it is now maintained by a community of developers under the OpenCV Foundation.

OpenCV is a huge open-source library for computer vision, machine learning, and image processing. OpenCV supports a wide variety of programming languages like Python, C++, Java, etc. It can process images and videos to identify objects, faces, or even the handwriting of a human. When it is integrated with various libraries, such as Numpy which is a highly optimized library for numerical operations, then the number of weapons increases in your Arsenal i.e whatever operations one can do in Numpy can be combined with OpenCV.

This OpenCV tutorial will help you learn the Image-processing from Basics to Advance, like operations on Images, Videos using a huge set of Opencv-programs and projects.

Addition and Blending of images using OpenCV in Python
When we talk about images, we know its all about the matrix either binary image(0, 1), gray scale image(0-255) or RGB image(255 255 255). So additions of the image is adding the numbers of two matrices. In OpenCV, we have a command cv2.add() to add the images. Below is code for Addition of two images using OpenCV : # Python program for adding # ima
