<!-- Stable --> <table class="tfo-notebook-buttons tfo-api nocontent" align="left"> <td> <a target="_blank" href=""> <img src="" /> View source on GitHub </a> </td> </table> Resize images to a target size without aspect ratio distortion. <pre class="devsite-click-to-copy prettyprint lang-py tfo-signature-link"> <code>tf.keras.preprocessing.image.smart_resize( x, size, interpolation=&#x27;bilinear&#x27; ) </code></pre> <!-- Placeholder for "Used in" --> TensorFlow image datasets typically yield images that have each a different size. However, these images need to be batched before they can be processed by Keras layers. To be batched, images need to share the same height and width. #### You could simply do: ````python size = (200, 200) ds = img: tf.image.resize(img, size)) ``` However, if you do this, you distort the aspect ratio of your images, since in general they do not all have the same aspect ratio as `size`. This is fine in many cases, but not always (e.g. for GANs this can be a problem). Note that passing the argument `preserve_aspect_ratio=True` to `resize` will preserve the aspect ratio, but at the cost of no longer respecting the provided target size. Because <a href="../../../../tf/image/resize"><code>tf.image.resize</code></a> doesn't crop images, your output images will still have different sizes. #### This calls for: ```python size = (200, 200) ds = img: smart_resize(img, size)) ``` Your output images will actually be `(200, 200)`, and will not be distorted. Instead, the parts of the image that do not fit within the target size get cropped out. The resizing process is: 1. Take the largest centered crop of the image that has the same aspect ratio as the target size. For instance, if `size=(200, 200)` and the input image has size `(340, 500)`, we take a crop of `(340, 340)` centered along the width. 2. Resize the cropped image to the target size. In the example above, we resize the `(340, 340)` crop to `(200, 200)`. <!-- Tabular view --> <table class="responsive fixed orange"> <colgroup><col width="214px"><col></colgroup> <tr><th colspan="2"><h2 class="add-link">Arguments</h2></th></tr> <tr> <td> `x` </td> <td> Input image (as a tensor or NumPy array).
