Could you provide us more information? what image format does the "imageCopy" have? Are you sure you can make the BGR to RGB conversion with that image? Here youhave a link with a similar problem.

Yes, first i'm filtering the images captured by my "cat" this is the full code: imagenCamera = imagenCopia = np.copy(imagenCamera) imgRGB = cv2.cvtColor(imagenCopia, cv2.COLOR_BGR2RGB) #This is where is the error blur = cv2.blur(imgRGB,(5,5))

As said in the response from Alexander in the link I passed you: " This site shows conversion from the numeric data types to the actual types, and type 17 corresponds to 8-bit signed int. This is the problem as cvtColor() does not accept 8-bit signed int images for the input.

So check your image format first and see if that format is supported by cvtColor() function. I think this instruction: imgCopy.dtype would help for that!
