Opencv Mac Install

I have Python 2.7 installed in /Library/Frameworks/Python-framework... along with numpy and scipy;Python 2.7.3 (v2.7.3:70274d53c1dd, Apr 9 2012, 20:52:43) [GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5666) (dot 3)] on darwin;Mac OS 10.6.8 on standard desktop iMac

How can I install opencv linked to _this_ python?

(I've also get a macports python in /opt/local/Library... that was supposed to work with macports opencv; it doesn't because it's getting mixed up with the Apple python, so I hope to be able to remove it without fouling up even more things. Suggestions welcome on this too.)

I should also note that there are dozens of people trying to take a course at Coursera who have a similar problem trying to get Opencv to work on a Mac. We all hope someone expert in Opencv can help.

In this post, we will provide step by step instructions for installing OpenCV 3.3.0 (C and Python) on MacOS and OSX. If you are still not able to install OpenCV on your system, but want to get started with it, we suggest using our docker images with pre-installed OpenCV, Dlib, miniconda and jupyter notebooks along. Gocv version: 0.28.0 opencv lib version: 4.5.3 Cache builds If you are running a version of Go older than v1.10 and not modifying GoCV source, precompile the GoCV package to significantly decrease your build times.
