Hey, could someone please give me a concrete example about how to use the resize() function via command line?

This link seems to be promising, but it doesn't show how to set destination width and height and how to get updated camera info.

This link is also similar, but I don't understand which .h file it's about and why is a header file useful.

In the video tutorial I didn't find anything useful either.

I was expecting that I can specify the destination width and height via command line and also get the updated camera info. Thanks in advance!

Basically you run the nodelet and remap the input topics. The resize parameters you can change via dynamic reconfigure and/or provide initial values as cmdline parameters.

E.g. to downscale the /stereo/left/image_rect to half the size:

rosrun nodelet nodelet standalone image_proc/resize image:=/stereo/left/image_rect camera_info:=/stereo/left/camera_info _scale_width:=0.5 _scale_height:=0.5

Hello, I am new to ROS and would like to include this resize in my launch file. Could you help me out with this? Thanks in advance!

What it looks like in a launch file:

<node name="resized" pkg="nodelet" type="nodelet"
    args="standalone image_proc/resize"
  <remap from="image" to="/stereo/left/image_rect" />
  <remap from="camera_info" to="/stereo/left/camera_info" />
  <param name="scale_width" value="0.5" />
  <param name="scale_height" value="0.5" />

In a remapping ~image is the input image (which will appear as resized/image given the node name is resized), while image is the output image
