In this tutorial, we will apply fancy indexing to set the diagonal values of the Lena image to 0. This will draw black lines along the diagonals, crossing it, not because there is something wrong with the image but just as an exercise. Fancy indexing is indexing that does not involve integers or slices; it is normal indexing.
We will start with the first diagonal:
To set the diagonal values to
0, we need to define two different ranges for the
lena[range(xmax), range(ymax)] = 0
To set the values of the other diagonal, we require a different set of ranges, but the principles stay the same:
lena[range(xmax-1,-1,-1), range(ymax)] ...
