class torchvision.transforms.RandomAffine(degrees, translate=None, scale=None, shear=None, interpolation=InterpolationMode.NEAREST, fill=0, center=None)[source]

Random affine transformation of the image keeping center invariant. If the image is torch Tensor, it is expected to have […, H, W] shape, where … means an arbitrary number of leading dimensions.

  • degrees (sequence or number) – Range of degrees to select from. If degrees is a number instead of sequence like (min, max), the range of degrees will be (-degrees, +degrees). Set to 0 to deactivate rotations.

  • translate (tuple, optional) – tuple of maximum absolute fraction for horizontal and vertical translations. For example translate=(a, b), then horizontal shift is randomly sampled in the range -img_width * a < dx < img_width * a and vertical shift is randomly sampled in the range -img_height * b < dy < img_height * b. Will not translate by default.

  • scale (tuple, optional) – scaling factor interval, e.g (a, b), then scale is randomly sampled from the range a <= scale <= b. Will keep original scale by default.

  • shear (sequence or number, optional) – Range of degrees to select from. If shear is a number, a shear parallel to the x axis in the range (-shear, +shear) will be applied. Else if shear is a sequence of 2 values a shear parallel to the x axis in the range (shear[0], shear[1]) will be applied. Else if shear is a sequence of 4 values, a x-axis shear in (shear[0], shear[1]) and y-axis shear in (shear[2], shear[3]) will be applied. Will not apply shear by default.

  • interpolation (InterpolationMode) – Desired interpolation enum defined by torchvision.transforms.InterpolationMode. Default is InterpolationMode.NEAREST. If input is Tensor, only InterpolationMode.NEAREST, InterpolationMode.BILINEAR are supported. For backward compatibility integer values (e.g. PIL.Image[.Resampling].NEAREST) are still accepted, but deprecated since 0.13 and will be removed in 0.15. Please use InterpolationMode enum.

  • fill (sequence or number) – Pixel fill value for the area outside the transformed image. Default is 0. If given a number, the value is used for all bands respectively.

  • center (sequence, optional) – Optional center of rotation, (x, y). Origin is the upper left corner. Default is the center of the image.
