without - rotate image python

OpenCV Python rotate image by X degrees around specific point (4)

Or much easier use SciPy

from scipy import ndimage

#rotation angle in degree
rotated = ndimage.rotate(image_to_rotate, 45)

see here for more usage info.

I'm having a hard time finding examples for rotating an image around a specific point by a specific (often very small) angle in Python using OpenCV.

This is what I have so far, but it produces a very strange resulting image, but it is rotated somewhat:

def rotateImage( image, angle ):
    if image != None:
        dst_image = cv.CloneImage( image )

        rotate_around = (0,0)
        transl = cv.CreateMat(2, 3, cv.CV_32FC1 )

        matrix = cv.GetRotationMatrix2D( rotate_around, angle, 1.0, transl )
        cv.GetQuadrangleSubPix( image, dst_image, transl )
        cv.GetRectSubPix( dst_image, image, rotate_around )

    return dst_image

Quick tweak to @alex-rodrigues answer... deals with shape including the number of channels.

import cv2
import numpy as np

def rotateImage(image, angle):
    rot_mat = cv2.getRotationMatrix2D(center,angle,1.0)
    return cv2.warpAffine(image, rot_mat, image.shape[0:2],flags=cv2.INTER_LINEAR)

def rotate(image, angle, center = None, scale = 1.0):
    (h, w) = image.shape[:2]

    if center is None:
        center = (w / 2, h / 2)

    # Perform the rotation
    M = cv2.getRotationMatrix2D(center, angle, scale)
    rotated = cv2.warpAffine(image, M, (w, h))

    return rotated
