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:

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.
