Flatten a given input, does not affect the batch size.

layer_flatten(object, data_format = NULL, input_shape = NULL,
  dtype = NULL, name = NULL, trainable = NULL, weights = NULL)



Model or layer object


A string. one of channels_last (default) or channels_first. The ordering of the dimensions in the inputs. The purpose of this argument is to preserve weight ordering when switching a model from one data format to another. channels_last corresponds to inputs with shape (batch, ..., channels) while channels_first corresponds to inputs with shape (batch, channels, ...). It defaults to the image_data_format value found in your Keras config file at ~/.keras/keras.json. If you never set it, then it will be "channels_last".


Input shape (list of integers, does not include the samples axis) which is required when using this layer as the first layer in a model.


The data type expected by the input, as a string (float32, float64, int32...)


An optional name string for the layer. Should be unique in a model (do not reuse the same name twice). It will be autogenerated if it isn't provided.


Whether the layer weights will be updated during training.


Initial weights for layer.
