OpenCV Set Up

After several tutorial tries, I was able to install it successfully on windows with the same tutorial install of OpenCV that Corey used.

The step by step process is listed in the following link:  http://siddhantahuja.wordpress.com/2011/07/18/getting-started-with-opencv-2-3-in-microsoft-visual-studio-2010-in-windows-7-64-bit/

I then started to play around with the libraries. I was able to load in an image to a window.

 

// OpenCVConfiguration.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
//

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <cv.h>
#include <highgui.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
	IplImage* img = cvLoadImage( "S:\\Photos\\Television\\Pokemon\\pokemon.jpg" );
	cvNamedWindow( "Example1", CV_WINDOW_AUTOSIZE );
	cvShowImage( "Example1", img );
	cvWaitKey( 0 );
	cvReleaseImage( &img );
	return 0;
}

 

I do not have a webcam on my current computer to test video capture. I am going to attempt to get an IDE for my laptop to try this code. In the next few days I will attempt to code some edge detection for the images sent to me by Professor Johnson.
