OpenCV Filters - copyMakeBorder

Forms a border around an image.

C++: void copyMakeBorder(InputArray src, OutputArray dst, int top, int bottom, int left, int right, int borderType, const Scalar& value=Scalar() )

Python: cv2.copyMakeBorder(src, top, bottom, left, right, borderType[, dst[, value]]) → dst

C: void cvCopyMakeBorder(const CvArr* src, CvArr* dst, CvPoint offset, int bordertype, CvScalar value=cvScalarAll(0) )

Python: cv.CopyMakeBorder(src, dst, offset, bordertype, value=(0, 0, 0, 0)) → None

  • src – Source image.
  • dst – Destination image of the same type as src and the size Size(src.cols+left+right, src.rows+top+bottom).
  • top
  • bottom
  • left
  • right – Parameter specifying how many pixels in each direction from the source image rectangle to extrapolate. For example, top=1, bottom=1, left=1, right=1 mean that 1 pixel-wide border needs to be built.
  • borderType – Border type. See borderInterpolate() for details.
  • value – Border value if borderType==BORDER_CONSTANT .

The function copies the source image into the middle of the destination image. The areas to the left, to the right, above and below the copied source image will be filled with extrapolated pixels. This is not what FilterEngine or filtering functions based on it do (they extrapolate pixels on-fly), but what other more complex functions, including your own, may do to simplify image boundary handling.

The function supports the mode when src is already in the middle of dst . In this case, the function does not copy src itself but simply constructs the border, for example:

// let border be the same in all directions
int border=2;
// constructs a larger image to fit both the image and the border
Mat gray_buf(rgb.rows + border*2, rgb.cols + border*2, rgb.depth());
// select the middle part of it w/o copying data
Mat gray(gray_canvas, Rect(border, border, rgb.cols, rgb.rows));
// convert image from RGB to grayscale
cvtColor(rgb, gray, CV_RGB2GRAY);
// form a border in-place
copyMakeBorder(gray, gray_buf, border, border,
               border, border, BORDER_REPLICATE);
// now do some custom filtering ...

Note: When the source image is a part (ROI) of a bigger image, the function will try to use the pixels outside of the ROI to form a border. To disable this feature and always do extrapolation, as if src was not a ROI, use borderType | BORDER_ISOLATED.

This is a sample code (C++) with images for opencv copyMakeBorder.

string imgFileName = "lena.jpg";

cv::Mat src = cv::imread(imgFileName);
if (!{
    cout << "Unable to open file" << endl;
    return 1;

Mat dstBorderConstant;
copyMakeBorder(src, dstBorderConstant, 256, 256, 256, 256, BORDER_CONSTANT);

Mat dstBorderDefault;
copyMakeBorder(src, dstBorderDefault, 256, 256, 256, 256, BORDER_DEFAULT);

Mat dstBorderIsolate;
copyMakeBorder(src, dstBorderIsolate, 256, 256, 256, 256, BORDER_ISOLATED);

Mat dstBorderReflect;
copyMakeBorder(src, dstBorderReflect, 256, 256, 256, 256, BORDER_REFLECT);

Mat dstBorderReflect101;
copyMakeBorder(src, dstBorderReflect101, 256, 256, 256, 256, BORDER_REFLECT101);

Mat dstBorderReflect_101;
copyMakeBorder(src, dstBorderReflect_101, 256, 256, 256, 256, BORDER_REFLECT_101);

Mat dstBorderReplicate;
copyMakeBorder(src, dstBorderReplicate, 256, 256, 256, 256, BORDER_REPLICATE);

Mat dstBorderWrap;
copyMakeBorder(src, dstBorderWrap, 256, 256, 256, 256, BORDER_WRAP);
