Background Tuning Of Images With DeepLab V3 Using Pixellib

If today, I say that you don’t need any software to edit your pictures and can edit by yourself with pre-trained deep learning model in python, how awesome would that be?

Let’s see how we can make it.

But before that one needs to understand what foreground and background are.

Required Deep Learning Tools

Now we will try to understand the dependency and how can one download the pre-trained model.

To download the pre-trained model:

Open your browser and copy this URL there, press enter. https://github.com/ayoolaolafenwa/PixelLib/releases/download/1.1/deeplabv3_xception_tf_dim_ordering_tf_kernels.h5

Dependency: Pixellib

Installation: pip install pixellib

Code:

#importing packages
import pixellib
from pixellib.tune_bg import alter_bg
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
from PIL import Image
from IPython.display import Image as img
from pylab import rcParams
rcParams['figure.figsize'] = 10, 10 #it increases the size of plot
change_bg = alter_bg() #object creation
#here alter_bg() is a class
print(dir(change_bg)) #the functions it consists of
Output:

 '__delattr__',
 '__dict__',
 '__dir__',

Loading Pre-Trained DeepLab V3

Here, we will load the pre-trained deep learning model that is DeepLab V3 for our task of background tuning.

#loading pre trained model
change_bg.load_pascalvoc_model("C:/Users/91884/Desktop/deeplabv3_xception_tf_dim_ordering_tf_kernels.h5")

Loading Images

Now, as we are ready with the pre-trained model for background tuning, we will load the main image and the image of the required background. 

Main image:

file_name='C:/Users/91884/Pictures/demo.jpg'

plt.imshow(Image.open(file_name))

OUTPUT

Background image:

bg_file='C:/Users/91884/Pictures/background.jpg'

plt.imshow(Image.open(bg_file))

OUTPUT

Blur Background

First of all, we will blur the background of the main image.

change_bg.blur_bg(file_name,moderate=True,output_image_name='blur1.jpg')

plt.imshow(Image.open('blur1.jpg'))

OUTPUT

image, segmentation, deep learning, picture, deepleab v3, background

Grey Background

In the next step, we will make the background grey.

change_bg.gray_bg(file_name,output_image_name='gray.jpg')

See Also

plt.imshow(Image.open('gray.jpg'))

OUTPUT

image, segmentation, deep learning, picture, deepleab v3, background

Changing the background to a Solid Color

In this step, we will set the background of the main image to s solid colour.

change_bg.color_bg(file_name, colors = (225, 225, 225), output_image_name = "colored_bg.jpg")

plt.imshow(Image.open('colored_bg.jpg'))

OUTPUT

image, segmentation, deep learning, picture, deepleab v3, background

Changing the Background

Finally, we will change the background of the main image.

change_bg.change_bg_img(f_image_path = file_name,b_image_path = bg_file, output_image_name = "new_img.jpg")

plt.imshow(Image.open("new_img.jpg"))

OUTPUT

image, segmentation, deep learning, picture, deepleab v3, background

Conclusion

As we could see above, we were able to tune the background of the image very effectively. It required a very effort and could be achieved in a very few easy steps even when we were using deep learning. So using the pre-trained deep learning models yield effective results with less coding efforts.
