Azure Computer Vision API - Advanced Image Analysis

What is Azure Computer Vision API?

Azure Computer Vision API is a cloud-based service provided by Microsoft Azure that enables advanced image analysis. It can extract rich information from images, including text recognition, object detection, and facial analysis. This API is widely used in various applications, such as content moderation, image classification, and more.

Getting Started

To use Azure Computer Vision API for advanced image analysis, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Azure Portal.
  2. Create a new Azure Computer Vision resource.
  3. Retrieve your API key and endpoint.

Sample Code

Here's a simple example of how to use Azure Computer Vision API in Python:

import requests
import json
subscription_key = 'YOUR_SUBSCRIPTION_KEY'
endpoint = 'YOUR_ENDPOINT'
image_url = ''
headers = {
'Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key': subscription_key,
'Content-Type': 'application/json'
params = {
'visualFeatures': 'Categories,Description,Tags,Objects,Faces,Adult',
'details': 'Celebrities,Landmarks',
'language': 'en'
response ='{endpoint}/vision/v3.1/analyze', headers=headers, params=params, json={'url': image_url})
if response.status_code == 200:
analysis = response.json()
print(json.dumps(analysis, indent=4))
print('Error:', response.status_code, response.text)


Azure Computer Vision API provides powerful image analysis capabilities, making it a valuable tool for a wide range of applications. Whether you need to extract text, detect objects, or analyze faces, this API simplifies the process and helps you extract valuable insights from images.
