### CV Scanner using python | Image processing

Let us see the CV Scanner tutorial using python which is used to Scan Papers in a given image.

### Description:

You are given a raw image of a sheet of paper ( as shown in the sample ). You are required to
give an output image which correctly segments and orients the sheet.

### Input format:

<program> <input image> <output image name>
Example :
<program> input.jpg output.jpg

#### Output format:

The final image should be written to the filename given in the command line.

# initialzie a list of coordinates that will be ordered
# such that the first entry in the list is the top-left,
# the second entry is the top-right, the third is the
# bottom-right, and the fourth is the bottom-left
rect = np.zeros((4, 2), dtype = "float32")

# the top-left point will have the smallest sum, whereas
# the bottom-right point will have the largest sum
s = pts.sum(axis = 1)
rect = pts[np.argmin(s)]
rect = pts[np.argmax(s)]

# now, compute the difference between the points, the
# top-right point will have the smallest difference,
# whereas the bottom-left will have the largest difference
diff = np.diff(pts, axis = 1)
rect = pts[np.argmin(diff)]
rect = pts[np.argmax(diff)]

# return the ordered coordinates
return rect

def four_point_transform(image, pts):
# obtain a consistent order of the points and unpack them
# individually
rect = order_points(pts)
(tl, tr, br, bl) = rect

# compute the width of the new image, which will be the
# maximum distance between bottom-right and bottom-left
# x-coordiates or the top-right and top-left x-coordinates

# now that we have the dimensions of the new image, construct
# the set of destination points to obtain a "birds eye view",
# (i.e. top-down view) of the image, again specifying points
# in the top-left, top-right, bottom-right, and bottom-left
# order

# compute the perspective transform matrix and then apply it
M = cv2.getPerspectiveTransform(rect, dst)
warped = cv2.warpPerspective(image, M, (maxWidth, maxHeight))

# return the warped image
return warped

This code will detect the paper in a image.
Use this code and check the output with the following images.

It works fine with the images above.

Cheers!!!!
