Error in Images.jl example code

package

#1

I’ve tried the example code found in documentation of Images.jl
Image-algorithms for the warp function. Unfortunately the code does emit error:

using Images, CoordinateTransformations, TestImages, OffsetArrays
img = testimage("lighthouse")
indices(img)
# Rotate around the center of `img`
tfm = recenter(RotMatrix(pi/4), center(img))
imgw = warp(img, tfm)
indices(imgw)
# Alternatively, specify the origin in the image itself
img0 = OffsetArray(img, -30:481, -384:383);  # origin near top of image
rot = LinearMap(RotMatrix(pi/4))
#LinearMap([0.707107 -0.707107; 0.707107 0.707107])
imgw = warp(img0, rot);
indices(imgw)
#(-293:612,-293:611)
imgr = parent(imgw);
indices(imgr)
size not supported for arrays with indices (-30:481,-384:383); see http://docs.julialang.org/en/latest/devdocs/offset-arrays/

Is this funcionality supported only on Julia 0.6? Could somebody please point me to the code location i could try to improve? I must admit I’m still new to the rewritten Images.jl.

Thank you a lot.

#2

For non-1 indices arrays you need Interpolations v0.4.0 or higher.

Really, the whole warp functionality is rather new and still actively developed, so your are likely required to be on the latest 0.5 compatible versions of the Image related packages.

Things do work on 0.5, but I know little about what that means for JuliaPro


#3

I’ve updated all packages to latest stable versions, but the error remains and is restricted to image output in Jupyter via show function (from Images.jl).
I’ve found the possible cause for the error. Its mentioned in https://github.com/JuliaArrays/OffsetArrays.jl#special-note-for-julia-05

During the transition during Julia 0.5 to allowing arrays with arbitrary indices, certain operations (like size and length) are deliberately unsupported; see the documentation describing the reasoning behind this decision. The general recommendation is to use indices and linearindices for most operations where size and length would have formerly been used.

And this is exactly what function Base.show{C<:Colorant}(io::IO, mime::MIME"image/png", img::AbstractMatrix{C};.... in Images.jl is doing.
I’m not sure it has any workaround other than to wait for 0.6 release.


#4

I’m not sure it has any workaround other than to wait for 0.6 release.

The workaround is that we fix the downsize_for_thumbnail() function, which should be pretty easy. The OffsetArrays.jl readme which you linked has a hint that we can use:

Try editing Images/src/showmime.jl to change

a, b = size(img)

to

a, b = map(size, indices(img))

(you’ll need to restart your IJulia kernel after doing this).

Does that resolve the issue?


#5

I am working with Images a lot and I am on 0.5.0 on my big machine. So I am sure it works on 0.5. My guess is you have some packages that are pinned on older versions. Maybe someone familiar with JuliaPro knows more about that aspect


#6

The demo works for me on both Julia 0.5 and 0.6. As @Evizero suggested, check Pkg.status() and see if you have some old package versions due to “dirty” or pinned packages. Prior to 0.5.2, there were also some resolver issues that prevented one from running the latest code in JuliaImages.
