Build image pyramidsΒΆ

The pyramid_gaussian function takes an image and yields successive images shrunk by a constant scale factor. Image pyramids are often used, e.g., to implement algorithms for denoising, texture discrimination, and scale-invariant detection.

i_row = 0
for p in pyramid[1:]:
    n_rows, n_cols = p.shape[:2]
    composite_image[i_row:i_row + n_rows, cols:cols + n_cols] = p
    i_row += n_rows
